EcoDataCenter to reuse heat in fish farms and greenhouses

Sweden's EcoDataCenter will be sharing its excess heat with a local circular industry player to enable food production. EcoDataCenter and Wa3rm will focus on large-scale cultivation in fish farms and greenhouses in the projects, though further details haven't been shared.

Data centers are increasingly offering waste heat for reuse, although the economics of the practice are still difficult to negotiate.

Using waste heat for agriculture is well-established, with greenhouses heated by waste data center heat for some years - for instance, TeleCity did it in Paris in 2010. Other organizations using waste heat to grow plants include ITrenew and BlockHeating, while crypto provider UnitedCorp proposed greenhouses for a dome-shaped facility in Quebec in 2019. Digital Crossroad in Indiana has a data center that includes a test center for agricultural robots.
