It is a rare sight to see flowers blooming on cold winter days. For flowers to grow off-season, greenhouses must be heated with various techniques. Instead of using common methods, Afyonkarahisar Municipality is recycling thermal water that flows through the city to heat greenhouses.
Thermal water used at hot spring facilities and in residential heating is transferred to the greenhouses and used to warm them up in the winter.
The thermal water-powered greenhouses have been in use for three seasons now and the municipality hands out some of the flowers to local people on special days and festivals, for free.
