Project “De Leeuwerik 1” almost finished !

In order to ensure that we minimize the environment, we have chosen to place a so-called “buffer tank” in which approximately 500,000 liters of water fit into.

Of course the barn, the office and the cafeteria are already heated by our residual heat (from the cool cells). Thanks to this buffer tank, it is also possible to store the extra residual heat that is released from the greenhouse during the day by heating the water in the tank.

In the evening/night we can re-use this heat again by returning it to the greenhouse. As a result of this, we use less gas at the times that it would be necessary.
