CO2 recycling by speeding up tomato growth

Tropical conditions while shooting this story for Linde in plain winter. In the Netherlands Linde is partnering with Shell to significantly reduce CO2 emissions. In the OCAP (organic CO2 for assimilation by plants) project, the carbon dioxide generated by Shell near Rotterdam, is transported around 85 kilometres to Amsterdam via a disused oil pipeline. There it is used to supply several hundred greenhouse operators, whose plants grow much better when exposed to higher concentrations of CO2.
