1 Fabrication of robotized Vertical Farms with plasmaelectrolytic power supply Patents RU C1, RU C1 Zhukov V.P.

2 2 Novelty of project Integration in the vertical farms of: both crop and animal production fish farming and pharmaceutical manufacturing will provide the high agricultural intelligence in the large megalopolises, and will allow the elimination of land, fuel and energy and water recourses' and fertilizers' use. Vertical Farms projects will be the pledge of land rehabilitation all over our Planet.

3 3 Novelty of project The world still is discussing this problem. The first attempt to construct the urban farm called «Mudсhute Park & Farm» was made in London for tourists, but this farm didn't have the finished project for forage production. The London's designers left out of consideration that the availability of built-in forage production in vertical farms is the main growth engine both for the operational efficiency and profit earning.

4 4 Novelty of project NASA and Russian Aerospace Center made an inestimable contribution into the formation of fresh approach to the problem at issue. It became possible to apply the largescale aeroponic crop production which belongs very well with the algae production. This novelty allows reduces Vertical Farm's investment by hundreds times.

5 5 Novelty of project Plasma processing of the wastes and of the water and air environment together with the vast stretches pastures will provide both good health for all consumers of vertical farm's production and fine ecology for towns and villages.

6 6 Novelty of project Plasma decomposition of water into hydrogen and oxygen with the help of synthesis-gas obtained from the organic wastes and electrolytic power generation will make an industrial revolution in agriculture. Biogas, wind and solar energy can't provide electrical energy for the vertical multi-sector farming.

7 7 Novelty of project At present time the founders of vertical farming Dickson Despommer (USA) and «Ramses Architect» (Canada) try to spark the interest in the developing of this industry by putting into life the micro-projects for vegetable production including that on the roofs of high-rise buildings. The offered project presents the large-scale production because only the large commodity production can provide the intellectual occupation building of popular majority, and thus can give the possibility to survive in any crisis condition.

8 8 Novelty of project The Vertical Farm's design and stand-alone electrolytic power generation allow the gradual step-by-step clearing the construction for operation and regardless of fluctuations in market demand.

9 9 Competitiveness of project Annually the first Pilot Vertical Farm for 2000 milk cows can give animal, fish, vegetable and pharmaceutical output production, as well as the electric power production, fertilizers and water to the extent of 24,000 tons of milk, 20,000 tons of sturgeon-paddlefish's meat, 2000 tons of sturgeon-paddlefish' black caviar, as well as nucleic acids, arachidonic acid including, without any using of land, fuel and power, water resources and enrichment of soil.

10 10 Competitiveness of project It can produce the annual output of plant products for forage cereals and pharmaceutical purposes The output of grain-clover forage obtained out of the stems and roots grown up on 150,000 square meters aeroponic throttle germinating chambers is 134,000 tons; Green lotus amount grown up in the alike 75,000 square meters germinating chambers situated on the blades is tons; The amount of moisture-protective covering algae grown up in three pools of 30,000 square meters each is 28,000 tons; The amount of spirulina obtained from ten growing layers of ten pools of 30,000 square meters each is 60,000 tons.

11 11 Competitiveness of project It should be noticed that the production output of high-yielding forage crops is twice as more as the output of both animal and fish production, that providing the possibility to grow the quality variety of herds' replacement every two years.

12 12 Competitiveness of project To expand the Vertical Farm's applicable scope, the second variant of Vertical Farm's construction which allows a tenfold increasing of green forage production at the expense of multi-layer throttle germinating chambers arranged in the vertical conveyors at each floor can be proposed for the investor.

13 13 Competitiveness of project Minimal power level for the plant's electrical irradiation by red and blue emitting diodes is 45 megawatts. Minimal power level for air electrical filter of moisture, ammonia and hydrogen sulfide in the animal's zone, as well as the power of the germinating chamber's electrical drivers, compressors, pumps, air conditions and milking machines are 10 megawatts. Taking into account the assimilability level (60 %) of the grainclover's stems and roots greenery, as well as of the lotus and algae, the production output of organic wastes is 18,000 tons. This amount of organic wastes is quite enough for fertilizers producing, for decomposition (catalysis) of water into hydrogen and oxygen and for generation of 55 megawatts of electrical power by means of plasma-electrolytic generators. As the light-diode technique and the plant's irradiation methods are developed the excessive electrical power will be directed to the food and pharmaceutical production's perfection as well as for sale to the neighboring energy consumers.

14 14 Competitiveness of project By comparison, the conventional technologies in Russian climate conditions would have demanded 440,000 square meters of plough land plus the same area of heating reservoirs to produce the same amount of output, not talking about the necessity of the procuring, transport and storage's expenses for the forages provision, for the feed mixing, for the finished production and wastes; The damage of the products inadequate quality and of ecology violation is not yet calculated; The proposed project execution will also allow ameliorating of the conventional production engineering.

15 Market potential and Company market standing For the purpose of functional conversion of Russian, Central Asian and Caucasian Republics' enterprises destroyed by the crisis the annual requirement in the vertical conveyor throttle germination chambers VKZh-1 with the plasma-electrolytic power supply is estimated at 210 thousands complete sets. European countries, USA, and Canada started the wide work to convert the standing enterprises to the vertical market gardening and pond fish farming. Similar to the whole world market, the markets of South-East Asia and of other continents are not now occupied by the multi-sectors vertical agriculture. The only exception is South Korea where the Government took a firm hold on the market and the saturation of market is scheduled till For our projects the foreign market capacity should be estimated at 500 thousands of vertical conveyor complete sets per year. Our projects use the previously unknown high technologies, plasma-electrolytic method for the power generating, fertilizers, air and water producing out of effluents and organic wastes. 15

16 16 Competitive advantages It is the possibility to exclude the storage, shipping and energy charges and to cut the labor costs in course of production of the most wide and high-priced kinds of food (steamed milk, live fish, shrimps, sturgeon roe, spirulina, fresh vegetables, fresh-killed beef and so on). The considerable reduction of production costs gives the vertical conveyors the prospects to switch fast the production of abandoned enterprises. The vertical conveyors design provides the possibility to change quickly both the volume and products line in accordance with the market requirements.

17 17 Sales channels & marketing The contracts for supply the schools and kindergarten's which can be tendered for providers by the local authorities. The services of the contracts with the supermarkets, restaurants, as well as the mobile sales network within a radius of kilometers. Searching for the customers, licenses, technologies and vertical conveyor's equipment, as well as the stock promotion. The development of both the commodity crediting and the retail store network at the place of production.

18 18 The risks Besides the common ways to decrease the risks we implement the program of market enlargement at the expense of technologies and engineering means' improvements in accordance with the law of the multipurpose integration owing to the ever-increasing application scope.

19 19 The Company development strategy Over the next 25 years the Company has to go through five five-years steps of development: The first step is the research and development works, and mastering the production of vertical germination conveyors with plasma-electrolytic power supply. Functional conversion of the enterprises hit by the crisis into the multi-sector farm holdings. The delicacy products selling. The sales of vertical germination conveyors complete sets. The repayment of a debt to venture investor. The evaluation Company's cost is 603 millions US Dollars. IPO. Stock trading. The second step is the expansion of both production and sales. The third, fourth and fifth steps are the further expansion of vertical germination conveyors' production and sales. Research and development works on the construction and development of G. K. Zhukov's robotized vertical farms with plasma-electrolytic power supply, for South-East Asia metropolises, for zoological gardens, safaris and circuses.

20 20 The essence of the innovation The functional conversion of the enterprises ruined by the crisis and the construction of new enterprises for the multi-sector farm agricultural production by means of implementation of robotized throttle germination chamber's conveyors for both food and grazing plants growing, as well as for sturgeons, shrimps, and spirulina, along with the mastering of the plasma-electrolytic power generating, fertilizers, air and water producing out of effluents and organic wastes.
