Circular City Greenhouses

Circular City Greenhouses by Van der Hoeven is sustainable fruit and vegetable production in high tech greenhouses using resources recovered from urban waste streams.  

Using a high-tech greenhouse means benefitting from high yields and year round crop production. In the strictly controlled indoor environment, water and air can be continuously recirculated, reducing resource consumptions to a minimum.  

The remaining demand for the four key resources needed in high-tech greenhouses; water, energy, nutrients and CO₂, is obtained from urban waste streams using proven technology. By seamlessly integrating into large-scale circular systems, our greenhouses  create industrial synergies and play a pivotal role in transforming regions from traditional linear models to circular economies 

Circular City Greenhouses is a concrete example of what can happen when the water, energy, food and waste sector come together to close the loop, benefiting cities, countries, industries, and above all, people.
