The ambition of the Horti-BlueC project is to facilitate the adoption of a new greenhouse concept, with a reduction in fossil fuel use and CO2 emissions, a reduced application of chemical plant protection products and fertilizers and replacement of virgin CO2. Horti-BlueC proposes to substitute non-renewable feedstock materials for growing media, such as peat or stone wool, with locally-produced, renewable feedstock materials.
