Toronto based CO2 GRO has begun its first commercial demonstration project of its CO2 Delivery Solutions with a Canadian floriculture operation in the Niagara region. The demonstration is being conducted at the customer’s commercial greenhouse with the goal of demonstrating more developed root systems in young plants, more flowering, accelerated growth time and the positive effects on common pathogens on a number of flower varieties. The customer has a total greenhouse capacity of over 500,000 square feet in Canada.
The Canadian floriculture greenhouse market is over 30 million square feet. This represents a substantial market for the application of CO2 Delivery Solutions as the vast majority of these floriculture greenhouses cannot gas their facilities with CO2 due to ventilation requirements.
CO2 GRO's CEO, John Archibald, commented “CO2 Delivery Solutions adds value to all plants and we are pleased to add the floriculture market to our portfolio of clientele. In terms of square footage, the greenhouse floriculture market in Canada is substantial. We have now begun gaining traction with major players in this market and look forward to quickly establishing ourselves through commercial demonstrations followed by commercial installations throughout their facilities.”
