Thermochemical fluids in greenhouse farming

Project description

Improving energy efficiency in the greenhouse

Greenhouse farming and energy intensive water recovery systems need new innovative applications to reduce their energy consumption. The EU-funded TheGreefa project proposes a new technology for heating, cooling, air humidity control and water recovery in greenhouses as well as for drying of agricultural goods using thermochemical conversion principles (desiccant fluids). These fluids absorb water vapour from air, converting the latent heat into sensible heat. The driving force required for the processes is low-temperature heat, e.g. solar heat or residual heat. The fluids store and transport thermochemical potential without any degeneration: the technology provides loss-free storage and transport. The project will further develop and demonstrate the new technology by testing it on different European climate conditions.
