COOPID infographic - Vegetable production
The production of vegetables is not always easy dueto weather variability or soil availability. To tackle these barriers, producers often resort to greenhousesas a solution. In addition to being a stable alternative to outdoor cultivation, greenhouses can be very sustainable systems if resources are used responsibly. Innovation facilitates in many ways the efficient use of resources.

NANOCELLULOSE MEMBRANES FOR NUTRIENT RECOVERY
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under Grant Agreement No 858735This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under Grant Agreement No 858735. FACTSHEET NANOCELLULOSE MEMBRANES FOR NUTRIENT RECOVERY Key information Functionalized nanocellulose membranes can take up nitrate and phosphate. These membranes can be put in a water treatment unit. As the membranes are biobased, degradable materials, they can after use be added to the soil, thus returning the leached nutrients back for their original purpose providing fertilizers (nutrient recycling).
Environmental monitoring within greenhouse crops using wireless sensors
Because variables such as temperature and humidity have a profound effect on the activity of crop pests, diseases and natural enemies, the ability to monitor environmental conditions within a crop has always been important for crop protection.
