The Tropical Greenhouse Project Ruswil

The Tropical Greenhouse Project Ruswil is the Swiss section of the natural gas transit pipeline between Holland and Italy and shows how the waste heat from a compressor station in Ruswil, Switzerland, is used to generate electricity and provide heating energy for an unusual project - a greenhouse in which tropical fruit is grown and fish are bred. The concept of the 'Tropical House', based on traditional agricultural methods developed in South China, is described.
