UK-based AEH Innovative Hydrogel Limited announced that the company received a £3.5 million investment from agri-tech leader Terra Sana Holdings.

AEH, established in 2018 and located at Manchester University's GEIC center, develops food-based fully recyclable hydroponic gel, based on a graphene material technology, which is designed to reduce food production costs, improve quality and lower environmental impact.

AEH will use the funds to fully develop its vertical farming system and to set up a manufacturing facility in Greater Manchester. This investment builds on a £1 million investment already made by Innovation UK to AEH.
