Wa3rm designates KUBO as preferred partner to build up to 200 hectares of greenhouses, mainly in Scandinavia

Scandinavia has the potential to become a major market for greenhouse vegetable production. WA3RM has joined forces with the world's leading supplier of high-tech greenhouses, KUBO, to usher in a new era in vegetable production. The goal is to set up to 200 acres of modern greenhouses powered by waste heat from industrial processes.

"We have great confidence in working with KUBO as a key technology partner to exploit all the opportunities to make Scandinavia a hub for vegetable production in Europe. In the coming years, there are several large-scale industrial projects where we are investigating the development of greenhouse projects using waste heat. We strongly believe that Sweden and Scandinavia have the potential to significantly increase their self-sufficiency of vegetables and possibly even become net exporting countries," says Jacques Ejlerskov, CEO of WA3RM AB.

By using waste heat from large-scale industrial production, the Swedish company WA3RM has developed a circular model that makes it possible and profitable to grow vegetables in colder climates. WA3RM and KUBO are currently working to develop the first greenhouse project in Sweden, on an area of about 20 hectares, for the production of tomatoes. In comparison, the current total greenhouse area for tomato production in Sweden is about forty hectares*.

Demand for sustainably produced plant-based food continues to grow. Vegetable production in modern greenhouses using waste heat addresses many problems surrounding current food production worldwide, such as water shortages and emissions from fossil fuel heating.

"It's very interesting to see different technologies coming together now. Semi-enclosed greenhouses can be heated with low-grade heat, perfect for waste heat. Moreover, almost all electricity in Scandinavia is produced from hydropower. All in all, a very sustainable solution for growing green food, literally and figuratively," says Wouter Kuiper, CEO of KUBO.

By working with a leading technology partner such as KUBO, WA3RM gains access to decades of valuable competence and experience in building state-of-the-art greenhouses.
