Hot Lime Labs is developing CO2 capture technology for the commercial greenhouses to increase crop yields and transition to low carbon renewable energy sources.
Modern commercial greenhouse operations can produce up to 20 times the yields of open fields while using only a fraction of the resources typically needed. Commercial greenhouses produce $35b of crops per annum and are growing rapidly.
CO2 enrichment enables up to 30% greater crop yields but the demand for CO2 far exceeds the current fossil-fuel based supply. Hot Lime Labs technology will allow the production of clean CO2 from renewable biomass source, on site, to meet this global need.
Hot Lime Labs is currently developing a pilot plant that will be installed at a large New Zealand capsicum grower in summer 2018/19
