Caterpillar, SunSelect announce greenhouse collaboration

Caterpillar and SunSelect Produce, Inc. have announced a strategic collaboration that will take the waste products of Caterpillar´s combined heat and power cogeneration facility in Mossville, Illinois, and put them to productive use in SunSelect hydroponic greenhouses. The agreement is subject to regulatory approvals, satisfactory due diligence, permitting and closing conditions.

SunSelect will purchase real estate adjacent to Caterpillar´s energy generation facility, Advanced Tri-Gen Power Systems (ATPS), to construct a hydroponic greenhouse. The greenhouse is expected to utilise excess thermal energy and carbon dioxide from ATPS´s natural gas fired turbines. By providing low grade heat and abundant CO2, the collaboration will maximise healthy plant production in the SunSelect facility and allow for more efficient use of Caterpillar´s power generation plant.
