(Surrey, BC, Canada) – May 15, 2012.
Tom Colclough, President of Renergy Foods AG (“Renergy”), today announced the completion of Phase II of the company’s 30 by 10 meter BioDome project at its subsidiary’s farm site in Surrey, British Columbia. The BioDome’s ETFE pneumatic pillows have now been installed on the aluminum structure and have successfully been inflated with the specialized dehumidification fan system.
The BioDome’s hi-tech ETFE “skin” provides a superior climate-controlled greenhouse environment that will provide ideal growing conditions. The ETFE pneumatic pillows will allow the transmission of more natural sunlight and utilize energy more efficiently than either glass or polyethylene used in traditional greenhouse structures. In addition, the ETFE pneumatic pillows will provide better insulation and snow loading capabilities.
Renergy’s subsidiary NuAgri, Inc. is currently raising capital to progress to Phase III of the BioDome construction project, which includes manufacturing plastic injection molds and components for the NuStax Growing System (vertical growing cabinets and columns), and installing the control, nutrient, air management, and supplemental lighting systems.
Phase IV will operationalize a polyculture aimed at providing a diverse selection of fruit, herbs, and vegetable varieties.
