John Baarda in East Yorkshire grows tomatoes in 42 acres of glass houses. In 2004 they decided to join forces with Terra Nitrogen to tackle rising energy costs. Terra Nitrogen produces carbon dioxide and steam as byproducts of nitrogen fertiliser production. By partnering they we are able to recycle the carbon dioxide and steam to heat and grow their crop.
