Soil-less farming scheme Duration: October 2019 / October 2020 Summary: Soil-less farming is one of the most promising solutions to increase food production, while limiting arable land and agriculture’s impacts on climate and biodiversity. However, today’s soil-less farming technologies (e.g. photosynthetic microorganisms cultivation or hydroponic farming) still fully rely on the use of mineral fertilizers derived from primary non-renewable resources. Natural soils, instead, are the most efficient circular-economy actors: communities of microorganisms ‘regenerate’ organic residues by oxidizing organic compounds and...

The VIDA project aims to accelerate the implementation of new solutions (preferably key enabling technologies – KET) in the food sector which improve the usage of water and energy with the ambition to reduce losses and consumption. VIDA has three different types of funding vouchers to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) seeking new resource-efficient solutions. VIDA is entering its final year and as we now make up the balance of the completed and ongoing projects, it is seen that not all of the available European Union’s INNOSUP funding has been used. To support as many innovative SMEs as possible, it was...

Water Future sodium removal system for greenhouse drainwater treatment Duration: 1 st of September 2019 / 1 st of September 2020 Summary: Problem: Greenhouses for food production are forced to discard their recirculation water at regular time intervals. Consequently, they are emitting pesticides, nutrients (f.e. nitrates / phosphate) and water to sewers and surface water, which are seriously polluting the urban environment. The reason for the forced discard is the accumulation of Sodium in the greenhouse recirculation water. Sodium is not taken up by crops and at slightly higher concentrations it is even toxic for the...
