Effecten van gebruik van tijdelijk opgeslagen CO2 uit WKK rookgassen op de groei van jonge tomatenplanten: Experimenteel onderzoek in het kader van “Afvangst en tijdelijk opslaan van CO2 uit WKK rookgassen”

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


New technologies enable the capture of CO2 from CHP (Combined Heat and Power) systems and its temporary storage in a CO2 battery, thereby enhancing the utilization of CO2 from CHP. The question arising from the adoption of this innovative technology is whether the quality of CO2 after storage in the battery is suitable for horticulture. To evaluate the phytotoxicity of CO2 from CHP stored in the CO2 battery developed by Value Maritime, young tomato plants were cultivated in fumigation mini greenhouses for approximately two weeks. One greenhouse received CO2 from the CO2 battery, while another received CO2 from a gas cylinder containing pure CO2. Throughout the experiment, the plants were visually inspected for damage twice a week, and at the end of the trial, the key growth parameters were measured. No visual damage was observed during the experiment due to the utilization of CHP-derived CO2 stored in the CO2 battery. Furthermore, no differences in growth were noted between the two treatments. The experiment indicates that no adverse effects are expected on young tomato plants when utilizing CHP-derived CO2 stored in a CO2 battery for approximately two weeks.
