How to maximize plant growth and crop?
With CO2 and Know-how!
Many greenhouses already have a CHP unit installed for heat and power generation. It covers the own needs as well as feeding the
excess into public grids. The resulting exhaust gases are rich in CO2, but they also contain many plant pollutants, such as nitrogen
oxide (NOx), hydrocarbons (HCs – especially ethene – C2H4) and carbon monoxide (CO).
Increase plant growth and crop by up to 40%!
The exhaust gas, cleaned by a H+H CO2 unit, can be used to
enhance the CO2 level in the greenhouse.
This effect will increase the plant growth by up to 40 %. The
ambient air has only a CO2 content of 320 to 360 vpm
which is not optimal for a lot of plants. Today’s experience
says that the optimum CO2 level for most efficient plant growth
is between 600 to 1600 vpm of CO2. Vegetables or crops
normally need higher values than ornamental plants.
