What We Do
Optima Planta are developing the technology of high-pressure aeroponics grow modules, enabling cultivation of plants year round, with no pesticides, soil, sun and with 99% less water*. The modules are optimized (in the mathematical sense) and automated from seed to fully developed plants. The grow modules make it possible to grow common plants with much less resources and enabling the cultivation of new exotic plants such as banana or mango in Sweden.
The company is a spin-off from Uppsala University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences as well as private investors.
The target audience is other businesses: medium- to large scale production of plants.
*compared to traditional farming.
