A cogeneration plant for a commercial greenhouse opened Friday in Ontario, the first of its kind in North America.
Designed by GE Energy, the greenhouse facility is powered by four of GE Energy's Jenbacher gas engines, using a carbon dioxide fertilization technology developed by Jenbacher.
The plant is designed to generate more reliable on-site power and heat while reducing emissions from energy production, GE Energy said in a release.
It is located on the commercial greenhouse complex operated by Great Northern Hydroponics in Kingsville, Ontario, which produces some 2.1 million cases of gourmet tomatoes for Detroit-area grocery stores and restaurants.
