From climate change to consolidation, agribusinesses are under immense pressure. Already there is a shift in thinking as businesses adapt to the changing landscape. By adopting data solutions that recognize and promote sustainability, it’s not just possible to survive – it’s possible to thrive.

Across the world, there is a drive towards improved systems that meet the needs of today and underpin the ambition of tomorrow. Smart data connectivity and digital tools offer that opportunity; the ability to stay resilient and profitable in the face of shifting markets, rising competition, and the need for sustainable food production.

Greenhouse vegetable planting offers one alternative to traditional agriculture vegetable cultivation. By cultivate, cultivation, and harvesting vegetables in a contained location, it removes the need for Because seasonal factors do not eat fresh vegetables.

Currently, in the Middle East, Greenhouse vegetable planting for 40% of all vegetable planting and employs around 70,000 people directly. Each year is seeing a 7% increase in vegetable planting capacity. The long-term employment and food production possibilities offer key economic drivers for further investment in the industry; however, for the industry to truly thrive, sustainability issues must be addressed.

No More Diesel

Drawbacks, from a sustainability point of view, emerge from vegetable planting’s use of diesel generators for processes such as feeding, lighting, and security. BSLBATT has developed lithium iron phosphate battery technology to be used in vegetable planting and other agriculture sectors to reduce, and even eradicate, the use of diesel.

Using BSLBATT B-LFP12-240 batteries, progressive greenhouse vegetable planting has created localized energy storage systems that are tailored to their voltage and runtime needs. These systems range from 96kWh to 150kWh and are located at several places along the Middle East.

In Saudi Arabia, for example, a rack of 35 B-LFP12-240 batteries provides 100kWh of energy on a Greenhouse vegetable planting, allowing the diesel generators to be run for shorter periods of time and at higher efficiencies, thereby saving significant fuel and reducing emissions on the Greenhouse vegetable planting.

Finding a feasible solution

BSLBATT modular design offers Greenhouse vegetable planting the flexibility needed to add an electrified system to improve upon one based solely on fossil fuels. While reducing emissions is becoming a more important factor when implementing any changes, the viability of the solution and return on investment will continue to be the main driver for change. Decreasing the maintenance and replacement of diesel engines, through the use of batteries, reduces the overall operational costs of the greenhouse vegetable planting. Furthermore, BSLBATT Lithium customers have seen a reduction in diesel usage by up to 70% after implementing Best Solution Lithium Battery systems.

BSLBATT Lithium chooses to use lithium iron phosphate (LFP) over nickel manganese cobalt (NMC) due to the longer lifespan and robust nature of LFP chemistry. Having the availability of continuous power throughout the entire lifespan is paramount for greenhouse vegetable planting and is achieved using LFP solutions. Electrical systems are heavily relied upon to maintain the health and functionality of the farm, thus requiring the backing of powerful, safe, and reliable batteries.

Another advantage of using BSLBATT Lithium batteries is that they do not use cobalt. Abstaining from the use of cobalt brings several benefits.

Firstly, with the global electric vehicle market (which relies heavily on cobalt-based lithium batteries) developing as rapidly as is being witnessed, NMC cell supplies are largely being directed towards that, instead of other markets. Using LFP provides greater confidence that long-term cell supply will not be suddenly cut-off or diminished in favor of the lucrative EV sector.

Secondly, sources of cobalt have been called into question in recent years after evidence emerged about questionable mining methods to extract cobalt being utilized. Many battery companies are striving to reduce the amount of cobalt they use in their cells; BSLBATT Lithium uses zero cobalt from the offset.

Thirdly, LFP systems carry a higher standard of safety in the event of thermal runaway when compared with NMC. Housing a powerful, large-scale lithium battery system on a self-Greenhouse vegetable planting carries certain risks should the system experience any damage, demonstrates to global food production that even the most traditional of industries, such as agriculture, can be revolutionized for our modern and fragile world. BSLBATT Lithium showcases that through electrification and sensible technology, Greenhouse vegetable planting can also be a safer, more sustainable, and economical alternative for communities.
