US: Houwelings launches waste heat & CO2 recovery system
The opportunities for this technology extends far beyond indoor growing environments. The ability to utilize wasted thermal energy is a benefit for any building or operation that requires heat. That could be everything from business parks, to apartment complexes, shopping malls, government buildings and more. The ability to capture and store thermal energy further enhances the broad applications for Houweling’s system.
In the case of the Company’s Mona, Utah farm, it was built next to an existing natural gas power plant. As such, Houweling’s is able to transfer low-grade heat and CO2 from the industrial stacks, utilizing proprietary technology. Once on-site, the heat is stripped out to be stored and used on demand. The CO2 is distributed into the greenhouse for plant fertilization.
Houweling’s CEO and industry innovator Casey Houweling notes, “I am incredibly proud of this project. It required substantial research, development and testing, not to mention a significant capital investment in the prototype. But with the commitment of our team and project partners, what was once an idea and a dream, has become a reality.”
