This Wind-Powered Vertical Farm In Denmark Produces 1,000 Tons Of Greens Each Year
[ 6/1/21 ]
Agree with Rj Tolley that biological production and health linkages are vastly more complex than most currently appreciate. We need to close a lot of the “loops” of material use that are open in our current systems – and that means recycling sewage, even if it takes a few decades to do so safely.
And vertical farming as described above really isn’t an efficient use of space when you include all the space required to capture all the energy and make and maintain all the infrastructure. Some form of greenhouse atop water and materials processing and storage systems is probably the most efficient use of matter and energy and space possible. Plants are reasonably efficient at capturing sunlight directly, far more so than using second hand solar energy embodied in wind, via windmills and electrical grids to produce artificial light.
