Emission-free greenhouse

The Dutch horticultural sector aims to be climate-neutral in 2040. Thus, Wageningen researchers have built an emission arm demo-greenhouse for the cultivation of vegetables, fruit and flowers in an effort to find ways to reduce CO2 emissions as well as the use of crop protection agents and artificial fertilisers to zero. Plagues and diseases are tackled biologically, and the energy-efficient greenhouse reuses water and nutrients as much as possible. This leads to cleaner cultivation as well as improved yield.
