Mercajucar, at the forefront of the sector

Climacontrol

Climacontrol is a project to develop the most accurate system possible to measure evaporation in mushroom growing rooms, determine optimal patterns and act accordingly to maintain ideal conditions automatically by generating a control system.

The main objective of the CLIMACONTROL project is the optimization of the growing conditions, quality of the product and optimization of the resources used and productivity of the crops.

This innovative project which MERCAJUCAR is part of has the participation of important companies and institutions such as Gurelan, BQ (Mundo Reader), the University of Castilla La Mancha (UCLM) or the Lurederra Technological Centre.

This project has been subsidize by the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Heliotubo

MERCAJUCAR is a company highly committed to the use of renewable energy.

With the goal of reducing the CO2 emissions of our company, in 2017 MERCAJUCAR in collaboration with HELIOVIS incorporated to our projects the “Heliotube”, the first infrastructure of these characteristics installed in the world. It is a 200m long, 10m high cylinder that concentrates the energy from the solar radiation in a duct housed inside and along its entire length, through which a fluid that carries the heat flows. The sun’s rays bounce off and are concentrated on a collector that has a fluid inside that reaches 230ºC and with this energy the heat that MERCAJÚCAR uses for the production of mushrooms is generated.

This pioneering project has been awarded the Energy Globe Awards by the Energy Globe Foundation for the use of energy resources through renewable energy sources.

Watering Systems

Water is a necessary resource in our mushrooms and for people, so in our desire to maximize the use efficiency of this resource we are collaborating to development of new irrigation techniques for our cultives.

MERCAJUCAR and Netafim (a leading company in the drip irrigation systems sector) in collaboration with CIES (Centre for Research, Experimentation and Services of Mushroom) they started this research project at the beginning of 2018, which is expected to help reduce water consumption by up to 20%, saving some 400,000 litres of water per year. In addition, this system would provide an optimization of the control over the air conditioning and have new irrigation periods, contributing to an improvement of the production processes and a better use of water.
