Weak Signal's description 
Especially EUPHOROS project reference (211457) aims at developing a sustainable greenhouse system that: does not need any fossil energy & minimizes carbon footprint of equipment; with no waste of water nor emission of fertilizers and full recycling of the substrate; with minimal need of plant protective chemicals yet with high productivity and resource use efficiency. Even an incremental adoption by the growers of the project results will increase competitiveness while reducing the European greenhouse production. There are many other projects working in this field as well.
