Prof. Dell Gives Talk at Keilir Atlantic Center of Excellence
November 10, 2015
Keilir Visiting Scientist Robert Dell has developed an award winning controllable geothermal heated gardens similar to Iceland's heated sidewalks. It has produced enhanced outdoor harvestable crops of tomatoes, zucchinis, turnips, and oregano at the Agricultural University of Iceland in Hveragerdi. A similar project at the Keilir Institute of Technology has also confirmed the survival of plants that normally do not live in outside in Iceland. In New York City this system uses waste heat on green roofs that created a small cotton harvest. Keilir students are needed to help develop this new technology for commercial agriculture applications in Iceland.
