      Converting farm waste into energy is one of the most efficient ways to reduce our carbon footprint, while earning additional income as well. It was reported that the process of converting waste into energy or farm fuel can end up generating as much as twenty eight billion dollars in 2016. This is a significant increase from eighteen billion dollars in 2012.

      Additionally, advancements made in logistic technology can make it much easier to transport food while reducing the environmental impact of such operations. Refrigerated boxcars can hold upwards of four truckloads, while reducing all of the harmful emissions that the same number of trucks would end up producing. These railways will be able to move all across the country while utilizing green technology.
