The world population is estimated to exceed nine billion, 30 % greater than 2013 by 2050. For the farming which has been dependent upon sunlight, water and soil since ancient time, the current water shortage, global warming and contamination & deterioration of soil are urgent to be solved.
A lot of enterprises have been contributed to the solution of the above-mentioned problems by developing unborn technologies in breeding, gene recombination and environment control fields.
We have succeeded to develop an unborn membrane which plays the role for soil by using a functional polymeric technology (hydrogel & membrane), one of Japanese world’s leading technologies. The new agro-technology incorporated with the membrane (Imec®) has enabled to grow safe and high quality vegetables even on the places like desert, concrete and seriously contaminated land where the current farming is impossible.
We are intending to restore the farm land seriously contaminated by Giant East Japan Earthquake and also to regenerate the barren land expanding by global warming by Imec®.
