Just a few years ago these technologies were just concepts, now they are rapidly approaching maturity stage and in a few years they will create huge markets. The list of sustainable technologies is compiled and updated by Market Research Media analysts:
- Vertical farming, the future of agriculture http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/01/09/the-vertical-farm. Even limited to high profit margin greens, the vertical farming is a promising urban development trend, bringing fresh produce closer to end customer.
- Next generation of nuclear reactors http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/demand-clean-energy-inspires-new-generation-innovate-nuclear-power/. For all green enthusiasm over wind and solar, we still need the base load carbon-free power, and nothing beats nuclear when it comes to both carbon free and seven by 24. The next generation of nuclear reactors also solves the problem of nuclear fuel wastes. /li>
