• The Greenhouse, reinvented.

    Learn how we achieve unprecedented energy savings and enable net-zero production for horticulture

  • Four Seasons, One BBBLS Greenhouse.

    Our greenhouse can easily adapt to all outside conditions

  • Core Technology

    BBBLS is a combination of multiple green innovations and operates net-zero

    Double Pane Constructed ETFE-foil

    The BBBLS greenhouse features a sustainable build specially designed double paned roof and wall with large panes of 2,7m * 4m. The interior growing area is the same as any existing Venlo greenhouse.

    Dynamic Soap BBBLS Insulation

    When climate, weather or daylight requires it, soap BBBLS fill the space between panes and boost insulation by 10 times! When insulation is not required anymore, the bubbles are removed to permit maximum light transmissions.

    Energy Optimization

    Thanks to the low energy loss, we store heat during daytime, and use it to heat up the greenhouse at night. Because we keep the greenhouse closed, this allows for very high CO2 levels for long periods.

    Real Circular Food Chain

    Our launching customer Reklima has developed an unique 'Digeponics' process to use organic food waste as fertilizer, and close the loop from food-to-waste-to-food!

  • How It Works

    Semi-closed greenhouse with bubble insulation, heat storage and high CO2-levels

    1

    Greenhouse with BBBLS roof and walls

    Double pane construction with soap BBBLS in the cavity

    2

    BBBLS construction = High light levels

    82% PAR light transmission due to large panes and use of ETFE-foil

    3

    Semi-closed greenhouse = High CO2-levels

    The greenhouse can stay closed for a long period of time, allowing for CO2-levels up to 1600ppm and resulting in an optimal growing climate

    4

    Bubbles ON = 10x insulation

    The BBBLS reduce energy losses with up to 90% and results in an ultra stable climate

    5

    Bubbles OFF = High light transmission

    BBBLS allow to vary the light transmission: Open for full transmission, or closed for diffuse light, shading and insulation

    6

    Excess Heat or Cold = Saved for later

    The energy stored during the day is used to heat the greenhouse at night, even at -10°c

  • What's the Value?

    Energy savings created by BBBLS translate into reduced carbon emissions, more consistent food production, higher profitability for growers and reduced risk on investment.

  • Proven Results

    We have developed and demonstrated 3 generations of BBBLS greenhouses and have verified performance records

    Heat Loss 0,3~0,5 w/m2K

    We have measured the energy loss in a 1000m2 greenhouse for the whole construction: roofs, walls, construction, doors etc.

    • A traditional greenhouse has a loss of 6-7 w/m2K
    • A modern greenhouse with thermal screens reaches 4-5 w/m2K
    • A BBBLS greenhouse performs at 0,3~0,5 w/m2K

    Light Transmission PAR 82%

    We have measured high-transmission on the plant canopy level, including double foil and construction shading. With the soap BBBLS in the cavities up to 60% of light is transmitted as very good diffuse light.

    • A low-iron glass greenhouse averages at 77%
    • A PE-foil greenhouse averages at 70%
    • A BBBLS greenhouse performs at 82%

    CO2-levels up to 1600ppm

    We are able to maintain high CO2 levels over longer times resulting in an optimal growing climate.

    • A traditional greenhouse averages at 450ppm during venting
    • A traditional greenhouse may reach 800ppm with CO2-dosing
    • A BBBLS greenhouse performs at 1600ppm

    Experienced Greenhouse Builders

    With 3 generations of BBBLS greenhouses built, the Design has improved step by step and we are ready to take thing to the next level
