What is AEROponics?

AEROponics is an innovative growing technique that has #RootsInTheAir:

they're NOT in soil as traditional farming, and they're NOT submerged in water as HYDROponics.

So, the plant is nourished by being sprayed ONLY with the water and nutrients

that it needs, with 0 pesticides.

Although it is not a new concept, at CleanGreens Solutions we developed our own

AEROponics mobile system, GREENOVA, to grow unique.

AEROponics how does it work

AEROponics 101

In any AEROponics system there is always a constant: above there is a light source that gives

direct light to the crops,

then a structure or support that holds them.

Below you can see the beauty of the roots in the air,

and underneath all, sprayers of water and nutrients. 

There are many ways to do AEROponics,

but they are all done in semi-closed or closed environments, also called Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA).

GREENOVA is the name of the patented mobile AEROponics system designed by CleanGreens Solutions.

It offers growers a highly automated solution for producing high-quality crops with minimal labor

and intrants. It is cost-effective and sustainable.

Reducing risks

Besides reducing labor and giving better conditions

for employees in terms of ergonomy, sun protection and 0 contamination for pesticides,

our system also minimizes the risk of human error.

The system operates in a closed environment meaning that plants are protected from pests, diseases, and other contaminants, ensuring that the crops are safe and healthy, as your crew.

A stress-free Greenhouse!

Automated agriculture

GREENOVA allows you to automate labor-intensive tasks, such as moving the crop modules.

The system relies on a metal structure that carries the plants through the growth cycle, eliminating the

need for manual labor.

Automated systems control the amount of water and nutrients and the frequency of irrigation, ensuring optimal growing conditions and high-quality crops.

Easy to use tech

GURU App: designed to be hassle-free, it also features the development of a user-friendly interface that makes it simple for growers to monitor

and manage their operations.


The system is equipped with sensors that

monitor the movement, alerting growers to any issues that may arise.


Greenhouse managers can also access real-time data

on crop performance and adjust settings as needed

to ensure optimal growth and yield, and much more.

Differences with

AEROponics is actually an modern evolution of HYDROponics, where the roots are submerged in water. With AEROponics, the roots are left in the air

and fed by spraying them with a water-rich solution.

Both methods offer advantages over traditional soil-based agriculture, including reduced water usage, fewer pests and diseases, and most of all being independent to climatic conditions to produce all year-long. However, there are some key differences between them that growers should consider when choosing an indoor growing method.

For us, AEROponics is the best option. See why:

HYDROponics vs AEROponics

Ok Icon Aeroponics

Phytosanitary risks

Reduce the risk of cross-contamination by the simple fact of having independent roots in the air and not sharing a growing medium or sharing water.

Crop Variety

A wider variety of crops 

to grow: baby leaf, romaine lettuce and spinach, among many others. Shape and weight: romaine lettuce retains its compact shape and can weigh up to 600g, compared to 300g for HYDROponics. 

Use of resources

Use 60% LESS water than HYDROponics. Also save in soil and nutrients. It takes 10 liters of water to produce 1kg of lettuce, compared to the average of 25 liters needed with HYDROponics. 

root Aeroponics

Root health

Get healthier roots: misting them with a nutrient-rich solution while they hang in the air creates an ideal environment for rooth grow, respiration and efficiency.

boxes Aeroponics

Shelf life

Thanks to a stronger cell structure you will get plants

with a longer shelf life.

factory Aeroponics

Industrial efficiency

Continuous sanitation:

365 days of production a year. No crop cycle lost for sanitation and system clean-up (like in HYDROponics) for the best industrial efficiency and maximized income.


Differences with
Vertical Farming

While indoor multi-layer VERTICAL farming

has been a trendy option for urban agriculture,

it has its limitations when it comes to the variety of crops that can be grown and the complexity of its operations. It also drives questions related to

the use of resources.

This is why we focus our efforts to produce on one layer in Greenhouses and called it HORIZONTAL farming. Below you will learn why we choose HORIZONTAL farming when we do AEROponics in the Greenhouse.

Vertical Farming vs Horizontal Farming

Ecology Aeroponics

Broader variety

Grow a noticeably bigger number of species like herbs, baby leaves, romaine lettuce, spinach and others:

+100 varieties of leafy greens

and +100 varieties of aromatic

and medicinal herbs.

Larger crops

Thanks to less space limitations you can almost double in size and weight.

Also, you get homogeneity thanks to the climate control: simply,

the plant grows better.

More eco-friendly

Save energy and save money.

As a matter of layout, the plants receive mostly sunlight thus using less artificial light. It also benefits from the natural greenhouse effect for heat and air circulation.  

Cool technology but,
what about 

The system we developed is a concept turned to reality that is already working and that brings great benefits to our customers in several countries.

By using GREENOVA system, growers can fast-track

their road to profitability with higher quality crops,

increased yield, lower operational costs, better control, and efficient use of resources.
GREENOVA makes it possible to contribute to

planet-friendly food production

and also run successful business.

Profitability is key to a successful business. Our system can easily help growers to fast-track their income with a wide

range of benefits.

Profitability Aeroponics

Lower costs

Our system has lower operational costs than other indoor farming techniques because it uses less energy, water,

and nutrients.

reliability Aeroponics

High quality crops

Growers can produce high-quality crops with a longer shelf life, higher

nutrient content, and better taste.

This translates to higher

selling prices and better margins.

settings Aeroponics

Better control

GREENOVA, our AEROponics system together with GURU, our companion app, provides full control over your greenhouse tasks and crop management.

expectation Aeroponics

Increased yield

Quicker growth cycles,

heavier plants and the possibility to cut aromatic herbs

multiple times. This leads to

best-in-class yields.

security Aeroponics

Efficiency checked

Our system is already installed and working, allowing growers around the world to save water, labor and other resources, and to have a profitable business!
