With financial support from the Greenhouse as Energy Source programme, Wageningen University & Research, business unit Greenhouse Horticulture, conducted a desk study into the possibilities of using carbon dioxide from oxidative bioreactors as carbon dioxide source for fertilising greenhouse crops. Oxidative bioreactors have recently been introduced to produce liquid nutrients for greenhouse horticulture. The CO2 released is not yet being used for the crop. The desk study investigated if it is possible to make a bioreactor with an adapted input simultaneously produce sufficient liquid fertiliser and carbon dioxide to meet the demand of a crop. In addition, it is discussed what this means for the quantities of required input, i.e. raw materials and associated transport movements. Finally, we looked at the expected quality of the gas flow and the expected problems with its application.
