Water-saving technology for horticulture under desert conditions

Water is not only beneficial to plants, it can be vital for cooling. In a pad & fan greenhouse, evaporative cooling works (due to the relatively low humidity of cooling) but the water consumption is high. By means of a closed greenhouse (our Sunergie Greenhouse) combined with a closed water circuit to cool the greenhouse, the use of water can be reduced with 99% compared to a normal pad & fan greenhouse. The cooling can also be completed by mechanical refrigeration or air conditioning. Furthermore, it is feasible to triple the production with better quality compared to a normal pad & fan greenhouse.
