  • A BTC mining farm in Ireland is using organic waste as the energy source for its operations.
  • The mining farm is operated by Scilling Digital Mining, an Irish crypto mining firm.
  • The mining farm generates around 0.42 BTC per month — over $8,000 given the current market price.

A Bitcoin (BTC) mining farm situated in Ireland revealed that it is using organic waste as the energy source for its operations. 

According to a blog by content marketing agency Adaptive Analysis, the bitcoin mining operation is happening in Armagh, a county on the upper-right side of Ireland.

In detail, there are at least 35 bitcoin mining rigs powered by excess energy coming from an anaerobic digester power plant. In other words, clean energy comes from biogas extracted from waste via fermentation.

The BTC mining farm is operated by Scilling Digital Mining, which is based in Ireland. The clean energy source also claims to provide 100% uptime to the bitcoin mining rigs. In contrast, other clean energy sources such as wind and solar farms cannot guarantee 100% uptime.

As per the blog, the operation obtains around 0.42 BTC monthly given the current mining difficulty. This translates to over $8,000 with BTC’s current price. 

Also, the blog asserts that anaerobic digesters can become an attractive source of energy for BTC mining since one problem that owners of these power plants face is too much excess energy. Given that BTC mining requires considerable amounts of energy, Adaptive Analysis believes that it will be a win-win situation.

The crypto content agency wrote:

“The genius of Scilling Mining is in utilizing Bitcoin mining infrastructure to fill the gap between the energy produced by these anaerobic digesters and the lack of a demand-side outlet such as an onsite demand load or grid connection.”

There are around 20,000 anaerobic digesters operating globally and around 1,000 deployed every year, according to Adaptive Analysis.
