Carbon footprint of greenhouse horticulture to reduce through LED lighting

greenhouse horticulture
The Climate KIC project in Europe aims to reduce the carbon footprint produce by greenhouse horticulture.

The Climate KIC project of Carbon LED aims to integrate LED lighting-based systems to achieve energy-saving and productive greenhouse horticulture.

Also, it aims to reduce the emissions of carbon footprint through an optimal light recipe based on LED light spectra. Crops will also have a 25% increase in productivity.

Furthermore, the main goal of this project is to shift to a zero-carbon economy among European communities. These collaborations of a number of companies will help greenhouse horticulture improve with a new set of technologies.
