Off the gas
And that can be seen. Not only on the solar panels on the roof and the water technology, where all the rinsing and drain water is completely reused, but also on the heat pump and the heat cold storage system that is laid under the greenhouses.
“We do it completely without gas. In the summer we harvest heat from the greenhouse air, which is stored under the ground via a heat exchanger at 130 meters, “explains Bart-Jan. “In the winter we can use this heat, and we store the cold return water back into the ground. It is the newest of the newest. With the same system we can actively dehumidify in the fall. In this way we contribute to making the agricultural sector more sustainable and innovating, without our high quality requirements being lost. ”
Furthermore, Bart-Jan uses as few pesticides as possible. “Not to do without it,” he explains. “But by starting with a clean slate every year, we can make it for a long time with organic pesticides in the form of critters.”
