Italy: Zero impact irrigation and heating technology for greenhouse in Bologna

Italian greenhouse irrigation company Spagnol srl signed an agreement with the consortium of Italian agricultural producers of Agribologna, in order to supply all the automations for a new greenhouse. The greenhouse, which will be heated by biogas, will be built in the region of Mezzolara di Budrio in Bologna, Italy.

The 1 hectare greenhouse will produce tomatoes all year round, and the production is estimated at 45kg per square meter by taking advantage from the heat coming from two biogas systems.

In order to realise this zero impact project, Spagnol studied and supplied the automations for:

- the accumulation of energy coming from the biogas systems;

- climate management for the cooling and heating systems;

- the management of the fertigation system;

- the system of collection of the drainage nutrient solution with UVC disinfection.

The whole project has been studied to create minimum impact on the environment, without forgetting the productive and the highly technological aspect of the used systems. Hence, the greenhouse will be powered by “green” energy coming from a biogas cogeneration system, fed by beets grown on site.

The project uses a closed loop irrigation system, to avoid the leakage of fertilizers in the environment. The drainage of the nutrient solutions will be recirculated as it will be purified through an UV disinfection system.
