    We have talked about the solar powered air-conditioned trucks by Mitsubishi Chemical earlier. Today, the company is again basking in green limelight by developing the container vegetable plant. This 40-feet heat insulated container has temperature controlled interior with water treatment facilities for water circulation, filtration and recycling. It is also fitted with fluorescent and LED lights to facilitate photosynthesis. All these features will help to grow plants in unfavorable circumstances too. Ideal for barren lands and deserts, such a green container can be powered with solar energy and lithium-ion battery too. Priced at about $60,000- $770,000, Mitsubishi Chemical’s container vegetable plant may not be an affordable option for third world countries. However the company is all set to deliver the first plant to Qatar in April.
