    Abstract : Livsmedelsproduktionen står för ungefär 26 procent av världens globala utsläpp av växthusgaser och har därmed en stor inverkan på planetens klimat och ekosystem. Sverige importerar majoriteten av de grönsaker och frukter som konsumeras i landet. READ MORE

  2. 2. One Square Meter Yield: A Hydroponic System Design

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Hithaishi Dayananda; [2021]
    Keywords : Hydroponics; Urban Food Resilience; Modular Design; Sustainability;

    Abstract : Vertical hydroponic farming is a developing sector that has the potential to mitigate the adverse effects of conventional farming while also meeting the demands of rapidly urbanizing populations. The global food system is responsible for up to 30% of anthropogenic GHG emissions, with primary production accounting for the majority of these emissions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Assessing the Potential of Hydroponic Farming to Reduce Food Imports: The Case of Lettuce Production in Sweden
