Sercom Regeltechniek and EMS scoop Innovation Award

Sercom Regeltechniek and Environmental Monitoring Systems (EMS) BV have won the prestigious prize for the most promising innovation at the Horti Fair with the development of their Air Monitoring. This announcement was made on behalf of the jury by Geert van Oosterhout, chairman of the international jury of experts, on the first day of the trade fair in the Amsterdam RAI. The jury noted that “suppliers to horticulture are continuing to innovate and invest in the future, despite the unrelenting economic climate.” A total of more than a hundred new products and services are being introduced at the upcoming Horti Fair. On behalf of the organizers, Horti Fair’s Chairman of the Board, Ewald van Vliet, presented the winner’s cup and a cheque good for € 2,500 in stand space for the next Horti Fair.

The innovation can be used to control the air quality in the greenhouse, in addition to the traditional parameters of temperature, humidity and light. This means that a new step forward has been taken in measuring and controlling plant quality. The key focus is the use of fewer resources. The CO2 dosage can be even better adjusted, the growth potential of the crop increased even more, and heat utilized even better. This combination tool (MACView Greenhouse Gas Analyser and SERCOM climate computer, stand 08.0305) focuses on reducing the consumption of energy and ensuring a crop that provides an added value.

Chairman of the jury, Geert van Oosterhout had this to say about Air Monitoring: “Sercom and EMS effectively apply technologies from other sectors to greenhouse horticulture. When the presence of small quantities of harmful gases in the greenhouse air is hindering the optimal growth of a crop, the source of the problem cannot be detected with the naked eye. Although it can be detected in more serious cases, it is obvious that the damage has already been done. Air Monitoring detects harmful gases even in low concentrations and thus makes the invisible visible. And it then provides guidelines for measures to solve the problem. This combination is thus adding a new dimension to greenhouse climate control.”
