VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Affinor Growers Inc. (“Affinor” or the “Company”) (CSE: AFI OTCQB: RSSFF), a vertical farming technology company and commercial production facility licensor and operator, is pleased to announce that it has been issued Patent No. 38806 by the Superintendencia de Industria y Comercio, Republica de Colombia for “vertical growing towers for automated horticulture and agriculture”.
Affinor’s vertical farming towers can be used to sustainably grow fruits, vegetables and cannabis in greenhouses and indoor facilities. The hot dipped, galvanized steel construction is a durable and long-lasting design capable of operating in all climates. The towers are part of a complete turnkey vertical farming technology solution encompassing automation, water conservation, soil remediation and alternative energy. It offers ease of plant maintenance, increased yield, lower production cost, higher quality, minimized water usage, optimized air flow and mechanical pollination. The company plans to offer their technology for licensing in 2022, wherever patent protection has been achieved. Affinor expects to showcase its patented commercial towers this year, in its 15,000 square foot greenhouse in Abbotsford BC, growing strawberries for local markets.
The Company plans to aggressively continue to build its patent portfolio of mechanical and process designs that address sustainability and climate change issues affecting the global agriculture sector. Affinor is also pursuing opportunities in other sectors, such as decorative flowers, reforestation, biotech, pharmaceutical and nutraceuticals.
Nick Brusatore CEO: “The United States Patent and Trademark Office issued the first patent for our towers in November 2020. I expect Affinor to be issued additional patents in the coming year from several other countries. Affinor’s simplistic, yet intricate ecological approach will define the future of vertical farming. I look forward to unveiling the next automated lines for herbs and high-demand leafy greens like kale, spinach and romaine lettuce. Our technology not only combats climate change and sustainability issues, but also assists countries to become more self sufficient in high-quality food production.”
Affinor is a publicly traded company listed on the CSE under the symbol “AFI” and on the OTCQB under the symbol “RSSFF”. Affinor is focused on developing vertical farming technologies and using those technologies to grow fruits, vegetables, and cannabis in a sustainable manner.
