This waste heat from the Charcoal retorts, gasifier and gensets will be circulated through a series of large insulated green houses, providing heat as no cost. Heating greenhouses in Alaska's severe winters is essential

Fresh produce grown in the greenhouses will be supplied to the local Kake market and the markets around villages and cities within Alaska.

However the major focus will be on growing organic vegetables, berry fruits and herbs that will be processed in the cold store using the existing freezer capacity, to produce packaged frozen vegetable and berries for export to supermarkets.

This project is designed to add an additional line of income and production to the existing cold store infra structure resulting in better utilization and economics and long term jobs.

The world demand for organic products is increasing each year.

The availability of fresh produce in Kake will reduce the cost of living and make a valuable contribution to the health and well-being of the local people.

The green house project is likely to eventually generate over $2,200,000 of income a year and create up to 60 new jobs.

KTC intends to encourage other villages to also develop  green house infra structure, supplying its excess produce to KTC for freezing and marketing.

Unlike other commercial green house operations whose major expenses involve heat and fertilizers ours are basically using free  byproduct heat and fertilizer from other projects making our green house production very cost effective.
