Orthoponics is the first vertical and smart solution that transforms every building in a green and productive building.

Orthoponics is a modular system to grow vegetables on building’s vertical surfaces. We solve the problem of mantainance of green walls technologies that is blocking urban farming to scale.

Our system is completely automated, from sowing to harvesting, and it can produce either edible or ornamental plants. The technology is made up of panels, wireless sensors, rails and a robotic arm. On the panels vegetables grown and integrated wireless sensors allow to monitor the growth and health of the plants. We use hydroponic cultivation, reducing by 90% the water usage. The rails embedded in the system allow a robotic arm to harvest and replace the plants, removing the need of human maintenance for taking care of the plants. Our robotic arm is able to move on tracks and moves the pots from the system to the rooftop in order to replace plants. Orthoponics is suitable for...

Orthoponics is suitable for existing urban buildings or new green building projects.

We want to change the face of our cities. We want to create cities and buildings of the future that are better for us and for our planet.

Great team! In just three months of acceleration, Orthoponics was able to bring their great technology from a pretty shaky business model to something that could disrupt the huge global market of building supplies. Stay tuned!
