Indoor Farming Company Works on HVAC with PUE 1.0
Indoor Harvest, a developer of commercial grade aeroponic and hydroponic fixtures for indoor agriculture, has executed a letter of intent with PUE 1.0 to design and build an engineered HVAC system for use in building integrated agriculture.
Indoor Harvest has also signed a letter of intent with the City of Pasadena, Texas, wherein it will develop a vertical farming facility and non-profit education center. The for-profit portion of the facility will grow leafy greens, herbs and micro-greens.
Indoor Harvest hopes to take PUE 1.0’s existing HVAC system for the data center industry and adapt it to indoor farming.
PUE 1.0 holds rights to use the patented KyotoWheel in its HVAC designs, which it says provides access to more compressor-free cooling hours than typical heat exchangers. KyotoCooling uses air-to-air transfer technology that provides 90 percent effectiveness in heat rejection. Additionally, it uses variable-speed compressors, combined with positioning the KyotoWheel in series with DX cooling, getting partial compressor-free cooling for certain climates.
