In a greenhouse, plants grow by converting water, fertiliser and CO2 into biomass. For some crops, the final product includes the entire plant, but in case of tomatoes only part of the total produced biomass reaches the consumer. The roots, leaves, stems and non-standard fruits of a tomato plant are mostly regarded as organic waste.
At Võiste Hackathon we invite you to offer solutions how to extract more value from greenhouse products and residual flows whilst producing in a cleaner way. We are open to exploring new business opportunities and research collaborations.
The launch webinar is a great opportunity to get insight into what kind of green gold can be mined by extracting value from biomass. You will also learn more about the scope of the challenge and detailed schedule of the hackathon process. Practical tips about the applying process and participation in Võiste Hackathon will also be covered.
