Technologies for: Pesticide residue removal

Ozonisation

             Ozonisation is based on the conversion of stable oxygen (O2) from air to unstable ozone gas (O3). The ozone gas is produced by an ozone generator in the greenhouse. Ozone is injected directly in the drain water and induces oxidation of microorganisms (fungi, microorganisms, and viruses) and organic matter […]

Osmofilm

OSMOFILM is a device for the treatment and disposal of pesticide leftovers. The disposal of such wastes is regulated at European level by Directive 128/2009 regarding the sustainable use of agrochemicals. Such a system consists of: 1. containers (usually 1 m3 volume, combinable and stackable) for the collection of waste waters deriving from the washing […]

Photo Catalysis

Photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) is a rather new technology in horticulture. It can be applied to i) disinfect water, ii) remove both organic and some inorganic pollutants, iii) improve color, smell and taste of water flows, and much more. In PCO processes, inert, non-toxic, inexpensive catalysts titanium oxide (TiO2) are used in combination with oxygen (from […]

Ultraviolet disinfection

For environmental reasons, it is necessary to reduce emissions of plant protection agents (PPA). Emissions must be virtually zero in 2027 at the latest (EU Directive 2000/60/EC). In some countries legislation forces horticulture to have emissions reduced considerably well before that date (example NL 2018). The first (and most effective) measure to reduce emission should […]
