Horti-BlueC has explored the potential for upcycling 5 local waste streams to contribute to sustainable soilless horticulture.
One of the main goals of the Horti-BlueC project is optimising the building blocks for efficient sustainable growing media.
The building blocks developed by the Horti-BlueC project are currently tested in innovative formulations of growing media in the greenhouse.
The aim of Horti-BlueC is illustrating the feasibility of processing the waste streams into added value products.
Data sonification of tomato trials
Horti-BlueC project partner, University of Portsmouth did a sonification of data collected from a tomato trial.
Horti-BlueC organised 4 webinars
Horti-BlueC proudly presented 4 webinars on the valorisation of sidestreams into building blocks for sustainable growing media
Horti-BlueC Newsletter 2021
The third Newsletter of the Horti-BlueC is published! In this final Newsletter the main conclusions from the project are reported.
Climate friendly alternative for growing media
Tomato and strawberry plants deliver the same amount of fruits with a comparative quality when grown in a climate friendly manner.
Research Centre Hoogstraten tests alternative strawberry and tomato cultivation
Worden aardbeien of tomaten binnenkort geteeld met hernieuwbare potgrond. Het kan.
Growing substrates with renewable resources match performance of classic, less sustainable relatives.
No more yield differences in tomato and strawberry when you remove environmentally damaging mineral wool and a large part of the peat in the cultivation substrate and replace it with renewable or less...
