L’agritech is the strong point of the Pavia scene. One of the most interesting startups, Localgreen, has recently started the scale-up phase in the area. Simbiosi is also supporting it, a company specialized in the creation of smart districts at the service of the territory and the industrial supply chain that has also launched a singular creature: theInnovation Center Giulio Natta di Giussago, a sort of company laboratory. Localgreen, it was said: vertical farming in aeroponics. In times of extreme drought and urgent need for new solutions for sustainable agriculture, a turning point. Just like the more famous Planet Farms in Brianza does, but with a different method that is still in the patent phase: with green walls and not on vertical shelves. The company, founded in 2019, grows its salads in structures that allow urban production 365 days a year, saving 95% of water and feeding 40% of the needs with photovoltaic panels on the roof and in the surroundings. . In the new warehouse of the Innovation Center it will be able to produce at least 100,000 bags of salad per week. Since April 25,000 have arrived in many Coop stores.
