Abstract

Iowans looking for value-added enterprises to pair with ethanol plants can consider greenhouses and aquaculture operations as options.

Key Question

What are the options for farmers interested in enterprises to link with ethanol production?

Findings

The project describes situations in the United States where greenhouse and/or aquaculture operations have been paired with power plants to take advantage of inexpensive energy. The contributing authors offer opinions about the hurdles that need to be overcome to make these businesses successful and suggest plant crops and fish species that would be valuable in the marketplace.
