Can strawberries and tomatoes be cultivated without non-renewable feedstock materials such as peat and mineral wool?
How can residual materials such as shrimp shells, CO2 from flue gasses, spent growing media, green waste and plant fibers be upcycled and contribute to sustainable soilless horticulture?
The Interreg 2 Seas project Horti-BlueC aims at solving bottlenecks and proposing new solutions for more sustainable growing media in horticulture and for upcycling byproducts from current practices. The ambition is to facilitate the adoption of a new greenhouse concept, with a reduction in fossil fuel use and CO2 emissions, a reduced application of chemical plant protection products and fertilizers and replacement of virgin CO2.
During this dissemination event, the final results of the Horti-BlueC project will be showcased. The event is open and free to all interested parties. Registration will be necessary and will be open in June.
