Switzerland: Grob Gemüsebau fights for geothermal energy project

Pilot project with thermal water to be approved for the long term

Water is necessary for vegetables to thrive. Grob Gemüse AG in Schlattingen has yet yet another function for water: thermal water from deep underground is used to heat their greenhouses. After a trial phase, this should now work long-term. The company has applied for a concession, the Tagblatt reports.

This should allow the company to use groundwater for heating purposes for the next 30 years. As the Cantonal Office for the Environment wrote in a press release, the application is open to the public until March 17.
