Carbon Harvest has received a loan to finish its landfill gas-to-energy plant in Battlebro, Vermont with a greenhouse and aquaculture facility.



The company already captures gas and produces energy from the district landfill. Waste heat from the methane power plant will heat the greenhouse and aquaculture facility.

In Canada, we also have a greenhouse project using waste heat from a landfill site.

At its 110-acre vegetable greenhouse in Delta, BC, Village Farms is purchasing heat generated from biogas collected at the city of Vancouver’s Delta landfill site. 

Village Farms purchases waste heat from the facility (built and run by Maxim Power) which it uses to provide 90˚+ C water to a boiler.    

Another greenhouse and aquaculture facility was just opened in Minnesota. Read the Energy Edge news story here.
