Is there An Environmental Upside to Bitcoin?

20 April 2021, 18:30

Only if you ignore the tremendous waste elsewhere. 

RISE work on heat reuse in green houses, mealworm farming and biomass drying is mentioned in SIERRA, The national magazine of the Sierra Club. The Sierra Club is the most enduring and influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States. They amplify the power of their 3.8 million members and supporters to defend everyone’s right to a healthy world.

RISE is coordinating several research projects on how to make them more efficient. In one case, they used hot air from a Bitcoin mining data center in a facility that dries wood chips, reducing the moisture content of the wood by 10 percent.

In another experiment, RISE want to attach a greenhouse to a Bitcoin data center, using the heat to produce local food instead of importing it. “We need to achieve a symbiosis around data centers,” says Mattias Vesterlund. “We want to integrate all these processes into a circular system.”
