Circular Economic Model

Revolutionizing Sustainability

Education

EnergiAcres food centers offer educational programs and training opportunities to help individuals and organizations. Each food center collaborates with local schools, community colleges, and universities to promote sustainability in the food system.

Mentoring

EnergiAcres food centers provide mentoring and coaching to help farmers, food producers, and food manufacturers to adopt circular practices. Food centers also connect modern farmers with a sustainable platform helping each accelerate the adoption of circular practices.

Renewable energy

EnergiAcres food centers integrate renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power, into their power generation system, blending and buffering power products and stored on site. Each food center oversizes power generation, serving the regional community with the power needed for transportation electrification.

Technology

EnergiAcres food centers use various technologies, such as AI and IoT, to optimize resource use, reduce waste, and improve efficiency. For example, they use AI to monitor crop growth and optimize water and nutrient use. AI is also deployed to produce and manage the power consumed onsite or stored on the grid.

Design

EnergiAcres food centers are designed circularly, using materials that can be easily reused, recycled, or composted. Food centers also use closed-loop power and food production systems to minimize waste and promote sustainable resource use.

Elimination of waste

EnergiAcres food centers design out waste using closed-loop systems, such as composting waste biomass and recycling, to minimize waste and maximize resource efficiency. Capturing emissions from power production reduces emissions of CO2 and instead sends it to greenhouses for plant consumption.

Innovation

EnergiAcres food centers promote innovation and support circular entrepreneurs by partnering with Universities and research institutions to extend research, development, and commercialization through the platform.

Efficiency

EnergiAcres food centers optimize efficiency in every area, from power production with CHP energy production to emissions scrubbing, and injection CO2 emissions into CEA grow centers. Each greenhouse includes automation and control of production from distribution to consumption. For example, they use vertical farming techniques to maximize space and reduce the land needed for food production.

Economic Development

EnergiAcres food centers have the potential to create new jobs and industries, particularly in areas such as renewable energy, upcycling waste gas, utilization of stranded assets, and circular food production. Controlled environment agriculture creates 2-3 X more jobs per acre and environments of human-friendly jobs.

Supply chain dynamics

EnergiAcres food centers optimize their supply chains to support circular practices, using local inputs, producing energy onsite, and reducing transportation emissions. They also partner with local and regional schools and universities to promote a people-centered circular food system.
