Polytunnel – Ready to Grow!

7 Jul 2021
Polytunnel – Ready to Grow!

As part of our work on Brainwaves we will be using polytunnels to develop an affordable system for growing duckweed. The use of polytunnels will extend the growing season, optimising biomass production and maximising the water remediation capacity. Recently re-covered, our polytunnel at Aberystwyth University, is now ready for our first prototype system to be installed and tested.

BRAINWAVES is funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales Cooperation Programme
