Australian clear solar glass technology will be used in the construction of a demonstration “self-sustaining,” off-grid greenhouse in Israel, as part of a joint pitch to the global sustainable agriculture market.

Perth-based ClearVue technologies said this week it had inked a deal with Roots Sustainable Agricultural Technologies Limited to explore complementary sales opportunities within the greenhouse sector.

Under the agreement, the two parties will jointly pursue sales opportunities, leveraging each other’s industry-leading technologies to offer a unique combined offering within the greenhouse market.

As part of the plan, they will build a demonstration greenhouse using ClearVue’s solar generating glass panels to explore powering Roots’ Root Zone Temperature Optimisation (RZTO) and Irrigation by Condensation (IBC) technologies.
