Most modern greenhouses use substrate for cultivation. The water distribution system is not only used for water but also for supplying the necessary nutrients and plant protection agents. It’s important to close the water-recycling loop and reduce the emission of these chemicals into nature.
Helping our natural edible resources to become more energy efficient
These valuable substances and other nutrients can be collected for reuse by means of membrane distillation technology instead of a reverse osmosis system, with far fewer scaling problems. Research is currently being carried out to investigate the possibilities for this application.
