Greenhouse horticulture allows for high product yields per unit of surface area and year-round production in temperate climates, such as the Netherlands, by using e.g. smart greenhouses and hydroponics systems. However these greenhouses use high amounts of energy for heating and/or added lighting. Moreover hydroponics systems rely on the use of mineral fertilizers, which require fossil resources to produce and of which some may become scarce resources in the near future.
deBaai develops innovations that allow the greenhouse horticulture sector to become more sustainable whilst not compromising on yield and quality.
