Surface:1 hectare
Description:In August 2018 Certhon implemented the SuprimAir technology in the UAE. Almost one hectare semi closed greenhouse for the production of tomatoes was built in the desert of Abu Dhabi. And with the first successful harvest of grower Pure Harvest in November 2018, a major step towards actual food security has been taken: the step towards the production of fresh and healthy vegetables with sustainable use of water, energy and raw materials in the Gulf region.

SuprimAir for Pure Harvest

Pure Harvest opted for the SuprimAir concept, where the use of conditioned air and over-pressure means that there is always a perfect climate to grow a healthy and clean product all year round. Through the application of over-pressure, computer-controlled efficient ventilation and cooling and the non-use of pesticides, healthy, local food can be produced in a sustainable way. In this perfectly balanced situation, the yearly yield to a traditional greenhouse can easily increase with +15%. Local produce becomes available in the summer months for the UAE, with the same uniform quality as any other season. With the aid of a hydroponic drip-irrigation, including complete re-use of irrigation water, water use is limited to the minimum.

In recognition of regional vulnerabilities associated with water scarcity, food import dependence and sustainability, Pure Harvest is committed to resource efficiency and overcoming climate challenges.
