"Tomatoes grow well on sugar beets' waste water"

Sugar beets are turned into sugar, but because a sugar beet consists of water for 75%, a lot of residual water remains after production. This water, which would normally be drained, will get a new destination in the greenhouse horticulture area Nieuw Prinsenland in the Netherlands. Suiker Unie captured the project.

Piet Janmaat, CV Glastuinbouw Nieuw Prinsenland: "It is a circular solution. We reuse water which would have ended up in the sea. It is a great addition to rain water and the tomatoes grow very well on it."
