White Paper: Carbon Dioxide Dosing, Water Desalination and Carbon Capture for Greenhouses

CO2 dosing can be highly beneficial to greenhouse crop yields.  This white paper covers some of the environmentally-friendly ways that CO2 dosing can be combined with geothermal energy, solar power and sea water desalination to allow nutritious fresh food to be grown in arid coastal areas around the world.  Carbon capture and re-use, from sources such as refineries and bio-renewable fuels facilities, is also highlighted to ensure the sustainability of this growing method.
