About A consortium of companies is trialling and demonstrating a concept for emission-free growing at the Water Innovation and Demonstration Centre in Bleiswijk, the Netherlands. After trials on rockwool (2014 to 2016) and buffered coco substrate (2016), it was the turn of unbuffered coco in 2017. “The results are better than expected,” say researchers Erik van Os and Jan Janse. “We had actually predicted a big increase in sodium levels, but luckily this didn’t happen. And yields were certainly no lower than on buffered substrate.”
