Greenhouse Manager Paul Ruser tend to sallad plants at the Gebr. Meier Greenhouse in Hinwil outside Zurich. Commercial greenhouses utilize tecnhical CO2 to increase the crop yield. Traditionally the CO2 production is done with burning fossil fuels, but the Meier Greenhouse get their CO2 locally the Swiss company Climeworks. Founded in 2009 by Christoph Gebald and Jan Wurzbacher, the company has commercialized the modular carbon capture unit, each of which is capable of sucking up to 135 kilo of CO2 out of the air daily. The CO2 collectors use excess energy from the Kezo Waste Incinerator to run the units. While the incinerator provide the energy needed, the CO2 collectors can absorb CO2 anywhere They are not dependent on particularly CO2 dense air. Greenhouse production can absorb up to 50 times more CO2 than a natural forest, and with the use of captured CO2 they can become important carbon sequesters.
