Total Controlled Environment Agriculture

Introducing

TCEA

We’ve built the world’s finest TCEA platform that truly represents the future of indoor farming. Each element of the system interacts with our platform and proven off-the-shelf components.

Our patented technology means you can control environmental elements, including lighting, watering, CO2 levels and nutrient delivery. We’ve designed it with economy and simplicity in mind. 

The platform also interacts with external energy sources to deliver optimised power usage day and night, with advanced power management to ensure energy costs areas low as possible.

Our aim is to produce food of excellent quality at prices that are economically competitive and in a way that is environmentally sustainable: we call this the '3Es' of modern agriculture.

The challenges

What issues does TCEA address?

Limitations of current indoor farming systems on the market

Scalability

Current models of vertical farms struggle to grow a wide enough range of high-quality crops profitably and at scale.

Mechanics

Stacking growing space requires power-hungry automation and mechanics.

Consumption

Power costs are driven up the challenges of achieving uniform lighting and ventilation with the required levels of control.

Pesticides

Monocultures are more susceptible to the effects of pests and require tight, balanced environmental control or pesticides. 

Profits

The industry has generated lots of attention and investment, but profitability remains elusive.

IGS has solved all these challenges
