This becomes the toughest year so far in the Plantagon history. The planning process in Linköping is once again delayed; this time due to that consideration must be taken to the local birdlife. Financing the Singapore project takes longer time than expected, even though the local authorities and Plantagon make joint efforts to succeed. An indoor project in Shanghai meets local resistance from authorities, again due to zoning. On the positive side the patent portfolio is growing to 25 international patents, small-scale prototyping of the Plantagon cultivation system proves that Plantagon beats expectations in productivity and biomass. Also, the standardization work goes into international ISO-level. Plantagon represents Sweden on successful official business delegations.
