Bankable loan to promote the country’s first glass greenhouse
Tsingsky Technology (Tsingsky) was established in February 2014. It focuses on complete solutions for tomato and vegetable factories centering on thin-skinned and sandy-fleshed tomatoes and integrates the whole cycle management, design, equipment and engineering to operation and maintenance. . Currently, there is a production base which spans more than 4 hectares in Moganshan, Deqing, Huzhou, Zhejiang and Shuimu Mengdian Carbon Neutralization Demonstration Factory located in Mengzhuang Town, Huixian City, Province of Henan, is the first agricultural carbon neutralization demonstration farm in China. .
Wang Xiaoqing, the founder, said, “Agriculture, as a pillar industry, is not purely economic. Tsingsky defends three values of agriculture: economic value, social value and ecological value. Deqing County, Zhejiang Province has promoted GEP-measured agricultural enterprises, fully considering ecological value, economic value and social value when developing enterprises, including population stability and environmental protection. urgency In order to reduce the carbon footprint, we position ourselves as a localized production and localized sales and calculate the total mileage of producing agricultural products. The sales radius should preferably be less than 15 kilometers. In addition, our greenhouse tomatoes mainly focus on emergency protection of urban vegetables that are not suitable for long-distance transportation and long-term storage and prioritize school supply.”
“The development of agriculture should fully respect the local natural conditions in order to achieve sustainable development. I have been insisting on production during the summer for eight years, and we have found that the groundwater temperature has always been 18 degrees and the ground temperature has been stable at 18-24 degrees, therefore geothermal and geothermal heat pumps are good energy solutions if there is no waste heat from the power plant as a source of heat. supply. Agricultural production must be adapted to local conditions, for which we also have to come up with a concept called “Flexible energy management in agriculture”. The combination of several energy sources such as underground sources, water sources, air sources, natural gas and biomass energy according to the actual situation can increase the COP (coefficient of performance) to the maximum. Currently, our COP has reached a maximum of 16 . That is, one kilowatt hour of electricity can achieve 16 times energy efficiency. Additionally, we also discuss DC conversion of greenhouse motors. In the future, more photovoltaics will be generated and photovoltaic energy does not need to be converted into alternating current. Therefore, the efficiency of DC motors will be about 40% higher than that of AC motors.
“From the perspective of the carbon footprint of the whole greenhouse cycle. I believe that glass greenhouses will become the mainstream of horticulture in the long term, and plastic greenhouses need to be replaced every three to five years. In addition, in the future, global agriculture will face many challenges brought by climate change, such as heavy rains, hail and strong winds. Glass greenhouses are more resistant to weather conditions. abnormal. In addition, the next 5 to 10 years are expected to be the greenhouse market for fruits and vegetables. The shelf life of leafy vegetables is particularly short. With the slow development of the world economy, cash crops such as small tomatoes and strawberries will not become mainstream, and people’s livelihood security and vegetable baskets will be the focus.The global economy is facing downgrading consumption, and products that guarantee basic life will become rigid needs. In the next five years, China will face a very fast professional division of labor. For example, there will be a group of professionals from water and fertilizer, biological control and other specialized companies.”
“While innovating in agricultural technologies, we are also actively promoting the progress of agriculture-related systems. In February 2022, Tsingsky also promoted the first bankable loan for glass greenhouses in China. Because agricultural land in China are leased to the nation, which is different from overseas countries like the Netherlands, where their land is privately owned, it is very difficult for us to take the assets on the leased land to the bank as collateral after leasing the land. We made a lot of effort and became the first greenhouse mortgage glass in China. The overall mortgage amount reached 80 million, and the first loan was issued in March 2022.”
“Agriculture is not simple and requires a heart of respect. It is an industry that requires very strong systems engineering and interdisciplinary capabilities and requires the integration of capital, management, technology, finance, law, planting and market content. The most difficult is the human problem, which requires not only knowledge and ability, but also a strong sense of social responsibility and a spirit of selflessness, and we look forward to more new generations joining us to promote the development of the industry,” Wang concluded.
