Low Carbon Farming

Low Carbon Farming

Low Carbon Farming is midway through the construction of two world-first, wastewater-heated greenhouses in East Anglia.

The projects, owned by Greencoat Capital, will use the UK’s largest-ever heat pumps to capture heat from Anglian Water’s water recycling centres and increase British tomato production by 12%, all while reducing associated carbon emissions by 75%.

The projects are intended as a bankable template for the nationwide roll-out of transformative, renewable heat solutions that could change the face of British horticulture.

The company recently revealed a pipeline of 41 giant, low carbon greenhouses with the potential to create over 8000 new jobs, generate £2.67 billion for regional economies, and increase the UK’s clean heat output by almost 3 TWh per annum.
