Devil’s Canyon Brewery Partners with Pure Energy Group to Generate Energy from Organic Waste

Groundbreaking new system is expected to dramatically improve the brewery’s bottom line by generating on-site bio-gas and electricity while significantly reducing the amount of spent grains from the brewing process. PEG’s new system represents a true game-changer for sustainability by creating maximum energy value and a rapid return on investment for breweries.

Pure Energy Group brings AD to urban settings with new technology

PEG4_14097803984676-300x300-noupAnaerobic digestion (AD) facilities are increasingly found processing food waste at large, centralized facilities outside of communities or processing manure on dairy and swine farms. Now AD can be found in a less remote, urban setting. Pure Energy Group LLC designs, builds and installs high-rate AD waste-to-energy systems for various commercial and industrial companies that produce organic waste streams with their day-to-day operations. The company’s first customer and first waste-to-energy system permitted and operational in an urban setting in the U.S. is Devil’s Canyon Brewery, located in San Carlos, California.

Food processing facilities are beginning to look like potential early adopters of waste-to-energy recycling. Because they are large single-point generators of food scraps, which have more energy content than sewage and some other organic materials, as well as being large consumers of energy, food processors are well-positioned to surmount some of the obstacles to implementation of anaerobic digestion reactors to turn food into electricity and gas.
