Ljusgårda provides sustainable year-round lettuce production
Together, Ljusgårda and ABB install sustainable SF₆-free switchgear for sustainable vertical farming that allows food to be grown locally, with minimal waste and efficient energy distribution.
Energy production and consumption are responsible for around two-thirds of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions*. In addition, Sulphur Hexafluoride, more commonly known as SF₆, is a potent and harmful greenhouse gas that is primarily used as the insulation gas in switchgear. It is 23,000 times more damaging to the climate than CO₂, with an atmospheric lifetime of 3,200 years. Ahead of upcoming F-gas regulation changes, ABB is supporting businesses in their migration towards a more certain future with low pressure, sustainable SF₆-free technologies.
