An interdisciplinary team led by Dr Anita Crompton and funded by NERC, has been investigating the feasibility of using waste nuclear heat to decarbonise and stimulate a reversal in the decline of commercial greenhouse use in the UK. This waste heat could provide the low carbon, low-cost heating needed by greenhouse growers to improve the economics of operations. It could also allow an expansion of edible horticulture, which could benefit the industry, UK consumers and the environment.
