Prototype Greenhouses 
Since November 2011 GreenGears LTD is involved in the design and construction of prototype Greenhouse units in Larissa Greece. Prototype design proposes the use of a three components system for minimizing water & energy consumption in agriculture, shallow geothermal component, water recycling unit (concentration) and the greenhouse (see how-it-works-page). These components need to be calibrated and adapted to each location. For geothermal component the preparatory activities include selection of energy transfer method, site preparation and definition of geothermal usage for energy savings. For the greenhouse component preparatory activities include greenhouse type and cover material selection and automation design. Finally water recycling unit (concentration) has to be designed according to geothermal and greenhouse parameters. For all equipment tenders will be prepared and carried out.

A web based application SMS (Soil Monitoring Software) is under developed. The application will support all critical functions required for soil monitoring and management, based on the soil monitoring. The use of Information Technology and the web environment will render the aforementioned methodology fully operational at the level of Local and Regional Authorities (LRAs).
Land degradation is a slow process driven by both natural and human determinants. The identification of the problem in early stage provides sufficient time to policy makers to intervene by implementing low cost policies. Driven by The European Thematic Strategy for Soil Protection, national and regional soil monitoring networks are being designed or have recently been created across Europe. The requirements of the monitoring networks are diverse. Monitoring information is needed to help policy-makers understand the current state of the environment, how it is changing, and to understand the pressures placed upon it. Information from monitoring is required to assess whether national and international laws and agreements for protecting the environment are met. Additionally, monitoring information will also support the development and implementation of future soil and environmental policy and management guidance by providing evidence on the state of soils.
