It is well known that all plants uptake the nutrients required for their growth by the ground throughout their roots, apart from CO2, which is absorbed throughout air, providing the carbon (C) needed to grow and develop fruits.
When plants are grown in a greenhouse, the planting density is quite high and the carbon provided by the atmosphere is not sufficient for high fruit production. For this reason, a special unit has been installed in our company, processing exhaust fumes through catalysis to clean CO2 exhausted by the engines.
The processed CO2 is channelled into the greenhouse, through a special pipe network, enriching the space that plants are grown with the desired concentration of CO2.
The capacity of this network is 1.5 tn of processed CO2 per hour.
