More organic matter in the soil may be beneficial for the climate, but contrary to what's been assumed it doesn't automatically increase crop yield. The amount is not the only factor, concludes research by NIOO's Stijn van Gils: it also depends on the context.
Solar energy does not pollute and won’t run out any time soon. But how best to exploit its power?
PV foil is 'building-integrated': it collects solar energy, and makes the roof waterproof at the same time.
Healthy surface water and soils are essential for life on earth, providing diverse life-support functions. How are these ecosystem services affected by human activity, and how can we change this?
In addition to conventional thermal energy storage, we use a solution that was developed especially for us.
With hot and cold water led through pipes in the concrete floors, we keep the temperature nice and constant.
How can we make sure there's enough daylight to work comfortably but not too much sun?
Imagine an oasis of green high above the bustle of urban life… at NIOO, nature's going through the roof!
Need a place to recharge your phone? Our roof features 25 m2 of energy-producing green!
Healthy surface water and soils are essential for life on earth. They provide a range of life-supporting functions, including carbon storage, oxygen generation, and nutrient cycling. At NIOO, we combine research on the ecosystem services provided to society with research on how these ecosystem services are impacted by society.
