An innovative new black carbon greenhouse designed by a local group of architects and designers will open for business this month in a small suburban community outside the US capital.
The project, which aims to reduce the use of greenhouse gas by the industrial sector and reduce CO2 emissions, is the brainchild of the US-based environmental group Black CREEK, which is behind the Black Creeks project, called Black Carbon Greenhouse, in which the greenhouse will house a solar energy system.
The solar panels will produce electricity, while the black carbon, produced through an innovative process called carbon capture and storage, will capture CO2.
The greenhouse is being built by Black Creek greenhouse, a partnership between architects and architects from around the US and a number of other cities around the world.
It was built by the group in partnership with architects from Black Creek, a sustainable design and design consultancy based in Washington DC, as well as architects and landscape architects from a number the US states of Virginia, Colorado, New Mexico and Oklahoma.
The Black Crees project aims to use solar energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the United States.
The greenhouse is set to be the first of its kind in the US.
“Black CREEk is proud to be one of the first to be able to bring together the vision of a community of green builders and designers to produce this amazing project, the first green-based CO2-emitting greenhouse,” Black CREES’ co-founder, Jim Grieve, told Newsweek.
Grieve said the greenhouse was intended to offer a community with access to clean and green energy for the first time, and also to provide a community resource.
“The greenhouse itself is a solar-powered solar-fueled carbon capture system, which will capture and store CO2 and then use that to make electricity for local communities,” he said.
“This will be the most sustainable and sustainable greenhouse in the world, because we are using zero-carbon energy,” he added.
Black Creek is the first environmental group to build a carbon-capture system in the country, which the group describes as “a novel, scalable, and efficient solution to the CO2 problem”.
The greenhouse will use two solar panels to capture CO 2 and store it in a reservoir.
The group’s website describes the system as being “one of the most cost-effective, energy-efficient and carbon-neutral solutions for the CO 2 problem”.
“The Black Carbon greenhouse is a new approach to building sustainable, carbon-negative buildings,” Grieve said.
The solar panels can produce power by themselves, but will also generate electricity through the solar system.
According to Black Crows website, the energy from the solar panels is enough to power the home for three months.
The carbon capture process will be “based on a solar array with a very high efficiency”, said Black CRESs website.
The first of the greenhouse’s four solar panels are located on the ground floor of the Black Creek Greenhouse.
The second is located in a garage and the third is located on a patio outside.
The entire greenhouse, including the greenhouse itself, is made from local materials, such as wood and aluminum.
The materials are made from reclaimed timber and other natural materials.
Grief said the design was meant to create “a sustainable, low-impact design that is more than just a greenhouse”.
“This greenhouse is not just a place to store CO 2, but is a living space, which means that it can be transformed into something much more, in a much shorter period of time,” he explained.
Black Creek is a community based organization that focuses on building sustainability in the area, and has hosted a number eco-tourism projects.
The group has also created a carbon capture project in the town of White Plains, New York, which also has a solar project.
