I just love when a company that produces a product that I use and enjoy does something really cool. In this case, Lagunitas Brewing Co., from Petaluma, CA, has repurposed shipping containers to create an energy saving waste-water treatment facility.
Known among beer aficionados for their hoppy, delicious beer, Lagunitas has teamed up with Cambrian Innovation to repurpose shipping containers and install the world’s first bio-electrically enhanced waste-water treatment system.
“We’re delighted for the opportunity to help Lagunitas address their water management and sustainability goals,” said Matthew Silver, CEO of Cambrian Innovation. “Beverage companies across the country are rightfully concerned about rising energy and water costs. Yet, waste-water itself contains energy. The Cambrian EcoVolt system uses recent advances in biotechnology to capture this energy, turning waste-water from a hassle to a revenue source.”
With demand for their craft-brew growing rapidly, the normal issues with how to handle waste-water cropped up, and together with Cambrian they found a pretty cool solution. Not only have they dealt with the issue of processing the waste water – -which must be done before disposal — but the remnants of that process are now used to generate the power necessary to brew the beer. They’ve basically killed 2 birds with one stone.
