This Futuristic Lettuce Farm Used To Be A Microchip Factory
Fujitsu, the Japanese tech giant, wants to feed the world with fresh vegetables grown in an old semiconductor fabrication plant.
Japanese electronics maker, Fujitsu Ltd., just started a lettuce farm. Well, it’s more of a lettuce factory. A super futuristic lettuce factory.
The Aizu-Wakamatsu Akisai Vegetable Plant is a 2,000 square meter (about half an acre) facility based out of the clean-room of a renovated semiconductor fabrication plant. Clean-rooms need to be free of environmental contaminants since even a single speck of dust could ruin the production of microcircuitry.
