Waste heat generated from water treatment plants will be harnessed and used to keep UK commercial greenhouses warm in a world-first.
The world requires an ever-growing amount of high-quality produce. This cannot be grown at any cost to the environment, the way we produce food needs to become more sustainable and less damaging. With this in mind, the Low Carbon Farming team set out to improve greenhouse heating systems to meet this challenge, and in doing so created a world first.
Our first two locations will create 360 permanent new jobs in Norfolk and Suffolk. The 70 acres of greenhouses will be capable of producing 12% of the UK’s tomatoes with a 75% reduction in carbon footprint.
