FAO Report Recommends Geothermal Use in Agricultural

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) has released a report presenting the potential uses of geothermal energy for food production and processing in developing countries. The report, titled 'Uses of Geothermal Energy in Food and Agriculture: Opportunities for Developing Countries,' explains that heat generated from geothermal energy can be used in many activities, such as drying foods, pasteurizing milk, sterilizing produce, as well as heating greenhouses, soils, and water for fish farming.  Many developing economies lose as much as half their harvest, and this is also beacuse of affordable energy for food processing. Developing countries could increase their food security by using their abundant geothermal resources to process foods for a longer shelf life.
