Double-Edged Sword for Iowa’s CAFO’s

Balancing Tax Credits and Clean Energy Solutions

According to published article of publicnewsservice, the proposed carbon emissions tax-credit rules in California present a controversial opportunity for Iowa’s factory farms particularly its Commercial Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs). While these operations are notorious for polluting Iowa’s groundwater some have implemented anaerobic digesters to capture methane from liquid manure which is then sold as environmentally friendly fuel. However critics such as Brenda Brink from Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement argue that these rules would unfairly benefit CAFOs over cleaner energy sources like wind and solar. They fear that incentivizing CAFO’s through tax credits could lead to an influx of new operations in Iowa exacerbating environmental concerns.
