"Seed Processing Holland offers solutions for high energy prices with their seed drying tech"

A report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics says that electricity prices have jumped up 15.8% in the last year, largely as a result of the high price of natural gas. Not only is it impacting households, but it also impacts overhead costs and business strategy, which might cause the desire to move past and become independent from nonrenewable energy resources.

Seed Processing Holland has foreseen this situation and has developed innovative seed-drying solutions. They introduced new sustainable heat pump- and water-based seed drying technologies to meet the demand and desire for reduction of energy and carbon emissions.

How can this help the seed sector?
“With Heat Pump Based drying solutions (with natural refrigerants with low GWP) or with the 100% electric and Water Based SPH-DAG (Dry Air Generator) with EC ventilator systems, energy consumption can be drastically reduced by 30-40%,” says Lawin Saleh, one of the sales account managers of Seed Processing Holland. “In addition to the cost-saving aspect, the efficient control system will dry the seeds or planting material accurately and in a controlled manner to improve seed quality independently of the environment, which also increases drying capacity.”

In the long run, Saleh believes one thing is true: the seed sector needs to look at alternatives to increase sustainability in the sector. Reducing their electricity use and their natural gas use can help reduce business costs and contribute to a more sustainable future.

“The seed sector needs to respond to the changing energy market,” Saleh says. “Our new seed drying technologies not only allow them to save costs but also ensure better seed quality and enable them to achieve their sustainable goals. Our new drying systems certainly live up to the high expectations. We are proud that world-leading vegetable and field seed breeding companies have recently decided to invest in these new technologies.”
