According to a recent study, a greenhouse with a special pink glass is the way to go if you want to maximize the effect of solar power in your greenhouse. This is good news to greenhouse company owners such as Josh Smith of Reno, Nevada.
Scientists have been able to prove that the pink glass can be able to harness sufficient solar electricity to manage the temperatures inside the greenhouse to facilitate the growth of plants. The scientists, who performed the project, confirmed that the new technology helps to lower gas emissions inside greenhouses. However, the pink glass actually panels which have been embedded with luminescent dye which is magenta in color. These pink panels are known as Wavelength Selective Photovoltaic Systems.
This new research was published in the American Geophysical Union Journal Earth’s Future. By the researchers who are from the Santa Cruz’s University of California. The technology has been tested on the growth of 20 varieties of plants and it has been proven that 20 percent of the plants grew more. If it is adopted, then the greenhouse food industry is likely to experience a boom in growth. However, researchers say that there is still a lot of work to be done before it can be adopted.
