Podcast: Tackling the otherwise impossible greenhouse solutions in hot and dry coastal regions

Professor Andy Lowe speaks to Charlie Paton, Founder of Seawater Greenhouse, a company that designs greenhouses that are powered by sunlight, utilize the seawater to water plants and also create a cooler and humid environment where plants can thrive and reduce evapotranspiration by up to 90%.

Seawater Greenhouse technology has been implemented in some of the hottest and driest places in the world, such as Abu Dhabi, Oman, Somaliland, and here in Australia, in Port Augusta for Sundrop Farms.

Here, Andy and Charlie talk about the novel greenhouse design and other solutions to help tackle climate change within agriculture.
