Using waste water from the beer making process to create energy

New Belgium Brewing – Ft. Collins, CO
New Belgium Brewing Company in Fort Collins, Colorado, is leading the charge in environmental stewardship. Not only do they commit 1% of their sales to environmental causes but they also redefine waste by treating their own waste-water on-site, in large flats powered exclusively by either methane gas derived from waste-water treatment or by wind power. While New Belgium Brewing claims to make “the best beer in the world,” they might just be making the best world by way of their beer.

How can we make resources out of our waste?,” commented Katie.
