Arizona has great potential as a large-scale producer of renewable bioenergy and bioproducts from sugar, oil, green waste, and algal sources. There currently is one full-scale ethanol production facility in our region, and we have been working with them to utilize new sources of biomass. Arizona could become a model for semi-arid land production of renewable fuels demonstrating responsible use of water, land, and workforce. Utilization of residual biomass is a key step for economic feasibility of the industry.
Our Vertical Green Box solution, aka the minimally structured, modular and prefabricated Vertical Farm, is specifically designed to usher in the transformative paradigm of the Vertical Farm that is sustainable -- economically, environmentally and socially.
