Industrial Community emissions, heat & CO2 recovery PLUS other cost reducing ideas ….any kind of Industrial Park or Zone – collaboration
Does your industrial zone have a waste incineration plant or any other facility emitting heat near greenhouses. It is possible to capture the heat to heat the greenhouses. Is the waste heat fizzling into the over-saturated atmosphere emitting GHG/CO2? It could benefit the local greenhouses with heat or do more if using CO2 collectors.
With this idea, it is possible to completely dispense with the use of fossil fuels to heat the greenhouses. A greenhouse of 37’632 m2 would require 2 million liters of oil per year.
The waste heat supplies energy at a relatively constant price, which allows the companies involved to calculate more accurate costs for their products. One energy product can be fuel.
Now, it is also possible to use CO2 collectors to capture the CO2 using the heat from the waste incineration plant or other facilities emitting heat, to increase the crop yield inside the greenhouse by up to 20%.
Bumblebees fertilize plants uniformly in a greenhouse, far less expensively than human labor.
Setting up Organic waste collection benefits crop fertilizing and produces cheap and clean energy, circulating resources back into the system.
Using collaborative Circular production methods in an industrial community can reduce expenses, collect and harvest resources and increase company profits for a whole community of businesses.
What other ways can the companies in an industrial zone collaborate?
