On-site hydrogen peroxide generators offer improved robustness, cost-performance, ease of operation

HPNow introduces HPGen 2021 models
Peroxide made simple – that is HPNow’s mission: the company’s products generate Peroxide UltraPure™ directly on site, when and where required, in an autonomous and safe manner. And with further improvements introduced to its HPGen on-site Peroxide UltraPure™ generators, that got even simpler. Meet HPNow’s new 2021 models, offering further improvements in robustness, cost-performance, control and ease of operation.

Improved performance at a lower price
In all the new HPGen models for 2021, performance has been taken up a notch, resulting in improved robustness under demanding operating conditions. The longer stack lifetime reduces maintenance costs, while the increased production capacity lowers costs per kg Peroxide UltraPure™ produced on site.

Output concentration has also been increased. “The higher concentration also needs to be taken into account in the dosing calculations,” says Rasmus Frydendal, CTO at HPNow, adding: “Production at a centralized location is also made easier, with less frequent transport to dosing points.”

Power to the user
The user interface for the 2021 HPGen A-series models has also received an upgrade. The power is now literally at the user’s fingertips: a touchscreen button allows users to stop the system if needed, or restart it in a controlled manner following a power outage. The included display shows the status of the system, output concentration, the reservoir level and any maintenance-related messages.

Improved robustness
“We implemented an auxiliary pre-water reservoir for our new models”, Rasmus says, “allowing the system to produce clean water and temporarily store it in this reservoir before introducing it in the cells with a small pump”. The reservoir lowers the overall water consumption and increases robustness in the event of a water-input interruption.

To measure is to know
The included HPSense sensor automatically measures the output Peroxide UltraPure™ concentration, enabling improved on-line control and ascertaining that treated water gets the required dosage. HPSense is already successfully operating in a number of systems in the field.

Global connectivity and preventive maintenance
The 2021 models will be pre-equipped with a global SIM card, enabling 24/7 connectivity, and upload of critical system health information to the cloud. This will enable proactive preventive maintenance, ensuring very high system uptime and further simplifying maintenance and related costs.

Integration and commissioning has also been simplified by replacing the previous float-based Peroxide UltraPure™ buffer tank sensors with a new pressure based version, allowing for simplified installation and continuous level detection.

Israel announces creation of global seed company

Two Israeli seed producers, Nirit Seeds and TomaTech, have joined forces to create Israel’s largest vegetable seed company. This synergy will enable unique seed breeding research and development that will accelerate the company’s growth in the international seed markets.

Upon completion of the merger, the company will have more than 80 employees worldwide, including molecular biologists, breeders, agronomists, and others.
The company will improve its breeding activities in Israel, Spain, Mexico and Italy, as well as significantly expand its representation in the Netherlands and North America, with a particular focus on growing vegetables in high-tech greenhouses.

Nirit Seeds is one of the most successful internationally traded tomato and pepper seed producers, investing in the development of revolutionary genetic technologies. TomaTech is one of the leading tomato seed companies in Israel, developing premium varieties, including those resistant to the dangerous Tomato Brown Ruffle Virus (ToBRFV).

The production of crop seeds is one of the most advanced and high-tech sectors in Israel. According to the Seed Department of the Federation of Israel Chambers of Commerce, seed exports currently generate $200 million in annual revenue. There are about 25 large and medium-sized companies in the local industry.

For reference. According to market research, the global vegetable seed industry is valued at $8 billion a year and is growing at a CAGR of 8%.

Karachay-Cherkessia became one of the leaders in the production of greenhouse vegetables at the end of 2021


Greenhouse vegetable production in 2021 reached a record 1.4 million tonnes. According to the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation, the leaders among the regions in this segment are the Karachay-Cherkess Republic, Lipetsk, Moscow, Kaluga, Volgograd, Novosibirsk, Saratov, Chelyabinsk regions, Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories, the Republics of Bashkortostan and Tatarstan. These regions account for more than 60% of the total production in the country. The intensive development of greenhouse projects in our country helps to provide Russians with fresh vegetables all year round. Last year, the harvest in winter greenhouses updated the 2020 record – more than 1.4 million tons of products were received. Including the production of cucumbers amounted to at least 830 thousand tons, and tomatoes – 590 thousand tons. It is expected that by 2025 the volume of vegetable production in year-round greenhouses will be at least 1.6 million tons of vegetables.
