Truly a "GREEN" HOUSE at Rosa Flora

At Rosa Flora we are constantly working towards reducing our fossil fuel requirements. We have achieved significant energy savings by implementing the latest "green" technologies. By switching from natural gas boilers to biomass-fueled boilers, we have minimized the net carbon dioxide produced, as the biomass is a carbon dioxide neutral fuel.
The biomass boilers use wood chips as fuel to heat hot water, which is circulated throughout the greenhouses.  This has been an effective means of offsetting expensive fossil fuels which would traditionally be used for heating purposes. We have also added a wood processing plant which converts the raw wood into a consumable fuel.  Performing this task on site has assisted in providing a quality, consistent fuel for optimum boiler performance.
