Ask: Need help with thinking around how to leverage Holochain and currency design for this specific pilot around a decentralized anaerobic digester (A.D.) near Seattle.
See our interactive map of economic and resource flows we want to monitor for this pilot.
Opportunity Impact BioEnergy has multiple digesters in the Seattle area, with literal tons of liquid bio-fertilizer (compost water), so this pilot would be replicated. The other important part of this is this digester has a community ownership structure in process, so communities can build wealth that is circular and regenerative.
The problem this is solving is implementing an alternative to centralized processing or landfilling, which extracts tons of valuable resources from communities.
Decentralized anaerobic digesters help regenerate resources on location, and can be used for power, heat, Co2 for greenhouses, as well as liquid and solid bio-fertilizer for food production. (See interactive map as well as video below)
- Currency that’s backed by food waste “lasts”, perhaps other flows.
- An app to allow purchase & measure flows of the biogas and liquid biofertilizer
- Purchase in dollars rather than Holo
- There are transport costs ultra-low carbon transport costs and benefits that need to be applied as well
Below are some of our models, as well as some of the physical infrastructure that’s up and running.
We will do a zoom video call Tuesday, April 7th, at 11am (PST) to walk through this and get your feedback https://zoom.us/j/391900095
