- Pure Energy Group is a renewable energy firm that designs and builds anaerobic digestion systems.
- In May 2014, the Park City, UT,- based company launched a project at a new waste-to-energy plant in San Carlos, CA.
- The WTE facility is located at the Devil’s Canyon Brewery and converts waste from the beer into bio-gas used to operate the brewery.
This unique system is known as the “first project of its kind to be permitted and operational in an urban setting.” The company was presented with an award for from San Mateo County, CA, for its ability to divert materials from landfills.
Beer and waste could forge an interesting and useful relationship. Dane County, WI, plans to use carbon dioxide from landfill waste as a way to carbonate beer. The patented method would capture carbon dioxide from the site, convert it into dry ice, and sell it to brewers to use the CO2 to carbonate beer.
