Standing at three and a half stories, the BW FREEFLOW Greenhouse is designed to withstand seismic events and has withstood multiple Category 1 Hurricanes without any damage.  In this environment, BW GLOBAL was able to grow papayas (both fruiting and flowering) in the middle of winter in Canada with zero supplemental lighting, a feat that was deemed impossible by many industry experts. As Chairman of the BETTER WORLD Innovations Group (of which BW GLOBAL is a part), Timothy was responsible for establishing the BETTER WORLD Innovation Center™, a new development platform designed to rapidly commercialize Clean and Agriculture / Food System Technologies at scale.  The BETTER WORLD Innovations Group is currently working on more than 20 different Clean and Agriculture / Food Systems Technologies.
