Konsortiet utvikler 'Environmental Control system' (ECS), en ny teknologi for å oppnå dyrking i veksthus som et lukket kretsløp. ECS teknologien er helt automatisert og dreven av solenergi. Enheter er sammenstilt i standard shipping containers og blir solgt til veksthus dyrkere over hele verden.
These goals has been acheieved:
proof the ECS capability to operate a greenhouse as a fully closed system in the mild Norwegian climate.
verified the positive impact of the ECS on crops and optimize/redesign the ECS based on the findings.
We built a full-scale industrial prototype and tests using a semi-closed greenhouse as test facility.
The consortium develops the Environmental Control System (“ECS”), a key- technology for operating greenhouses
as a (semi-)closed loop. The ECS is highly automated and driven by a solar power generator. Both units are
assembled in standardized shipping containers and are sold to greenhouse operators around the world.
Connecting the ECS to a greenhouse ventilation system will result in:
1) Zero CO2 emissions
2) 70% water savings
3) 50% decreased energy consumption
4) 20-30% increased yields
