CO2 Delivery Solutions

Indoor use of CO2 gassing has enhanced plant yields for decades. However, over half of the CO2 gas is typically lost through leaks in indoor operations, and the vast majority of greenhouses cannot use CO2 since they require ventilation through which nearly all the CO2 in the air escapes. Of course outdoor growers cannot gas CO2 at all.
Indoor CO2 gassing levels of 800-1500 ppm are also not ideal for worker health and safety. CO2 GRO's patented CO2 Delivery Solutions enables growers both indoor and outdoor to consistently deliver optimal amounts of CO2 to their plants via an aqueous CO2 solution, resulting in higher yields, shorter grow cycle times, safely and profitably.

CO2 Delivery Solutions can be integrated into existing boom irrigation, overhead misting systems and if you don't have any existing irrigation, no problem, we will design and implement one custom for your facility.
How CO2 Delivery Solutions Work
CO2 from a gas tank and water from the facility source are plugged into the CO2 Dissolution Control System, which comes on a skid or can be integrated into booms. The CO2 completely dissolves in the water creating a saturated aqueous CO2 solution.
The CO2 solution is targeted directly on to the plant's leaves by misting micro droplets to create an aqueous film around the entire leaf surface. This film isolates the leaf from the atmosphere and creates a diffusion gradient that favors the transport of CO2 into the leaf and other gasses out of the leaf.
The carbon is used by the plant for photosynthesis to grow and the oxygen is given off to the atmosphere.
More carbon is now available for the roots and shoots to grow, increasing yield and profits.
Aqueous CO2 Misting vs CO2 Gassing
Aqueous CO2 is absorbed through the entire leaf's surface.
Team & Partners
CO2 Delivery Solutions has been developed and demonstrated with the help of top people and institutions:
St. Cloud State University has worked with CO2 Delivery Solutions for a number of years beginning with algae and now fully focused on maximizing the natural growth potential of several plant varieties. As dedicated partners to discovering the benefits of CO2 Delivery Solutions on plant growth, SCSU continues to provide valuable scientific validation and insights of how best to utilize CO2 Delivery Solutions.
Since the first successful demonstration of CO2 Delivery Solutions on lettuce growth, University of Guelph has become a key academic partner for demonstrating the benefits of CO2 Delivery Solutions on the growth of several crops including high value greenhouse crops, specialty crops and several outdoor cash crops.
