Environmental and Economic Assessment of a Greenhouse Waste Heat Exchange
Pearce, Joshua M.
MetadataShow full item record
As the economic costs of energy and the negative externalities associated with the combustion of fossil fuels threaten the economic viability of greenhouses in northern climates there is a renewed interest in the use of waste heat. This paper presents a technical and economic methodology to determine the viability of establishing waste heat greenhouses using the waste heat from industrial processes in northern climates. A case study is presented of an exchange between a tomato greenhouse and a flat glass manufacturing plant, which found the waste heat system is significantly more economic to operate than a purely natural gas system.

Impacts of Enhanced Temperature and Snow Deposition on Senescence Date, Vegetation Cover, and CO2 Exchange in a Canadian High Arctic Mesic Ecosystem Arruda, SeanArctic regions are expected to experience an increase in both temperature and precipitation over the coming decades, which is likely to impact vegetation dynamics and greenhouse gas exchange. To test this response, an ...
