I'm sorry to see all the non-profit and government grant garbage that we've been punished with too much lately. But, check out This Video of how the plant works. I'd like comments from people with knowledge of energy or indoor gardening as I am seriously interested in coping with the future heading our way.
47th and Ashland! Not the bestest of neighborhoods for being in on Thursday evening (payday).
The Unions will eff this thing up anyway.
I bet it makes no economic sense. Property taxes must be heck.
So, will those 125 (?) jobs be the new reduced hour jobs so that in reality they’re only providing 62 jobs? How much of my tax dollars will be wasted on this? How drunk will the fish become after eating the brewery waste?
On Doombsday Preppers, there was a family who was attempting to cycle like this. They filled their pool with tilapia and had goats and a garden in their backyard. Parts would work but I doubt an entire company could be totally self sufficient as they’d need a lot more room and sunlight for the brewery grains. Besides, didn’t the video say they would be bringing in outside waste.
Soylent Green Manufacturing. Probably gets government handouts.
Which Federal agency will run this operation?
What is the breakdown of Union jobs required to operate?
Fertilizer Union (excess capacitiy there....)
Those tomatoes strip mined in Fla are inedible. I think people would be willing to pay a premium for really fresh, really flavorful produce.
this might have more applications than just “green nazi” purposes. If it is viable it may be adapted to different environments. This might be able to be adapted to a moon base environment or other types of environments where you would need a closed loop system. I will be watching to see if this project is feesable and what the results are. thanks for the link
I get where you’re coming from!
There are a few things that I find fascinating about this whole idea. I’m wondering how small-scale you could take it down and still have it work.
I’m also wondering if the plants would grow in soil or with hydroponics.
I wish they had a better layout of the design.
Nevermind! I just found a lot of the answers to my questions!
The fly in the ointment with most of these systems is getting enough candlepower at a cost that won’t negate all the other advantages.
Interesting idea. I wonder if this was hatched by the same people that had cat and rat ranch in Lacon, IL?
