Sustainable Agricultural Structures & Renewable Energy Resources Lab
SASRER Lab specializes on
We focus on the development of novel cultivation systems in greenhouses, in the context of climate change.
We develop controlled growth chambers with efficient use of resources (energy, water, fertilizers, land and artificial light).
We experiment on hydroponic cultivation systems and on aquaponic systems to grow crops in a more sustainable way.
We integrate applications of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) to grow agricultural products that are environmentally friendly and have high added value.
We study and assess the environmental impact and carbon footprint of crops cultivated on the field or under cover.
We use indicators such as Energy & Water Use Efficiency, which help us assess the viability of our cultivation plan.
