Cryptocurrency miners are accused of being environmentally friendly, as well as excessive consumption of electricity: this leads to an increase in emissions into the atmosphere.
Therefore, there is now a tendency to transfer mining farms to green types of electricity. This is what Philip Hughes did from the Hendur farm in the UK. The owner cultivated the land of his farm and also owned a cryptocurrency farm that runs on renewable energy sources.
Electricity for the farm is produced from cow dung using anaerobic digesters – installations in which the methane released during the decomposition of cow dung is converted into electricity when burned.
Two-thirds of the energy comes from the Hendwr Farm anaerobic digester: it is used to power the farm and its fleet, and the remainder powers mining rigs based on GPUs and special ASICs. Anaerobic biogas digester is used to process food waste as cooking gas and fertilizer.
