Egypt's New Farm City Will House 50,000 Smart Greenhouses

By

Egypt and South Korea are teaming up to build a large agricultural complex that’s full of renewable energy and smart greenhouses. The new city will be located in Egypt near the Mediterranean shore. With the massive growth of middle-class consumers coming into the country over the next decade, this new area will provide a wealth of sustainability.

The deal between Egypt and the South Korean Korea-Arab Society (KAS) was signed back on August 15th and is worth around $10 billion USD. Across over 311,400 acres of land, there will be 50,000 smart greenhouses, desalination and solar power plants, and they will specifically be cultivating stevia. This product is a healthy substitute for sugar, being sweeter and doesn’t raise blood sugar like other sweeteners.
