Horti-BlueC - a new EU cooperation on reducing Bio-waste and CO2-footprint in horticulture
Horti-BlueC is a new EU project in the 2Seas area. The role of ECN>TNO is to turn bio-waste streams into Bio-energy and Biochar. Biochar is a charcoal-like product that is very porous and lightweight and will be used by partners to replace a large part of the peat in potting soils used in greenhouses. The new mixtures including Biochar will be tested and demonstrated in tomato and strawberry growing tests.
Horti-BlueC partners meet in Petten
