In recent days, VDH FolieKassen from the Netherlands has build a greenhouse in Germany. The greenhouse was built at Ackerlei Bioland Betrieb in Bruchkobel. It is an F-clean-covered foil greenhouse of around 8,000 m.


The greenhouse is mainly built for growing organic vegetables. Due to being fitted with an F-clean film and a thin ETFE film (Fluoropolymer), allow more light than glass and is specially made for horticultural greenhouses. If properly used and stretched, the polycarbonate, PE foil, and PMMA sheets can last up to 20 years. The F-clean sheet has 4-5% more light transparency than glass which is up to 94%.

The ability of F-clean films that allows the full spectrum of UV light to pass through it, is a positive feature for maintaining the quality of organically grown vegetables. The constant flow of UV light prevents the vegetables from being vulnerable to diseases and also the vegetables stay fresh for longer hours. The plants that are grown inside the F-clean greenhouse can also be compared with the plants that are grown in outdoor conditions. The F-clean film also has self-cleaning and anti-drip properties. It also has high refraction and reflection ratio and has no degrading effect from the sunlight whatsoever.

Energy Efficient

The greenhouse is the concoction of organic cultivation and impacting the environment in the least possible way. The greenhouse has energy-saving fabrics, double foiling, pipe rail heating for efficient energy savings, and a screen. In regard to these technologies, the user saves up to 40% of energy.
