The Dutch municipality of Eindhoven (Ergon) has put a new system into use. The system will become an important link in thermal weed control on paved surfaces. It is a solar boiler with a huge storage tank for warm water. This warm water is transferred to a suitable machine and subsequently heated further for weed controllers to use the hot water to eradicate weeds. The system has been developed by WAVE Weed Control bv. This is a pioneering innovative Dutch company specialised in equipment for non-chemical weed control.
