Affinor Growers Inc (OTCMKTS: RSSFF) Has Been Issued With a Patent for Vertical Growing Towers

Published

on

Affinor Growers Inc (OTCMKTS: RSSFF) has announced that the Superintendencia De Industria y Comercio, Republica De Colombia has issued it with Patent No. 38806 for vertical growing towers to be used in automated horticulture and agriculture. Affinor Growers is a vertical farming commercial production facility licensor and technology company.

Applications of the vertical farming towers

The vertical farming towers could grow cannabis, fruits and vegetables sustainably in indoor facilities and greenhouses. Their hot-dipped, galvanised steel construction is highly durable and can operate in any climate.

The vertical towers are part of a larger complete turnkey vertical farming technology, which includes water conservation, automation, alternative energy and soil remediation. It aims to increase crop yield, simplify plant maintenance, raise quality, reduce the cost of production, reduce water usage and improve mechanical pollination and airflow.

Affinor intends to license out its technology in 2022 in places where patent protection will be achieved. The company will showcase its towers in its 15,000 sq. ft. greenhouse in Abbotsford, BC, by growing strawberries for the local market this year.

Affinor Growers to keep developing technology to navigate climate change

Affinor will keep producing more mechanical and process designs to help the global agricultural sector deal with climate change and sustainability issues. Climate change has made traditional farming methods less viable. In addition, farmland is decreasing. This makes automated vertical farming towers a better option for water and space conservation.

 The company is also venturing into other markets such as reforestation, decorative flowers, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals and biotech.

According to Nick Brusatore, the CEO of Affinor Growers, the first patent for their towers was issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office in November 2020. The company will issue more patents in other countries in 2021. He adds that Affinor applies an ecological approach to define the future of vertical farming. 

Affinor is looking forward to launching its next automated lines for herbs and leafy greens such as romaine lettuce, kale and spinach. The company has the technology to solve issues of sustainability and climate change. It also helps other countries become more self-sufficient when it comes to food production.
