Eight students of the Qatar Academy for Science and Technology (QAST), a new Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) school visited Certhon yesterday. The students visited the Dutch company because of their curriculum focus on reducing the need for imported food with a specific focus on growing fruits. The academy aims at honing the abilities of talented students to be the leaders and innovators, as well as building a distinctive generation in different paths that is innovative and in line with the requirements of the 21st century in facing the challenges of local and global reality, as well as to prepare students to succeed in institutions of higher education excellence.

This visit gave the students the opportunity to ask everything about the SuprimAir technology Certhon implemented in the UAE. Almost one hectare semi closed greenhouse for the production of tomatoes was built in the desert of Abu Dhabi. And with the first successful harvest in November 2018, a major step towards actual food security has been taken: the step towards the production of fresh and healthy vegetables with sustainable use of water, energy and raw materials in the Gulf region.
