Now he [Matthew Silver] sees the company’s work as part of a growing movement. “We see a big trend associated with extracting resources from waste—treating it more as a potential source of value than a cost burden. That’s very similar to how it’s looked at for space travel.”
As part of their effort to build out a sustainable brewery from the onset, Jackson and Delves invested in technology from Cambrian Innovation, provider of wastewater solutions to industrial producers.
With the global population predicted to approach 9 billion people by 2030, we are using more resources than the planet can provide. Our future depends on reusing what we have in a sustainable way. Fortunately one resource that is unlimited is innovation, and many companies are developing ingenious ways to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Recently on the Wednesday, January 16 edition of Bloomberg Baystate Business, Cambrian Innovation founder and CEO Matt Silver was featured as the C-Suite guest. Listen below or on Bloomberg’s website. Jump to 00:41:03 for the conversation with Matt Silver.
Now, the beer maker is turning to a Watertown tech firm for help in living up to its all-natural aesthetic. Cambrian Innovation plans to treat Tree House’s waste water on site, using a micorbial system that promises to clean the outflows while generating gas to heat the brewery.
“The next time you sit down with a cold pint of your favorite beer, think about this: it takes roughly eight pints of water to brew just one pint of beer. Brewing is a water-intensive industry, and brewers who successfully manage their wastewater will avoid paying high fees to manage their effluent and realize significant savings in the long term.”
The MassVentures START program, in its seventh year, has now invested almost $19 million in 74 different projects. Here’s a look at this year’s awardees.
With Earth Day around the corner, we’re paying tribute to the planet with a look at natural and eco-friendly wines. We’ll learn how one of those bottles goes from the winery to your table. Plus, the innovators working to conserve water in the wine and beer industries. Jump to 00:29:30 for the interview with Cambrian… View Article
Collaboration between food and beverage producers and municipalities for wastewater treatment solutions helps avoid contending for limited resources.
Certain industries, like brewing beer and wine making, use a lot of water. Like a lot. A lot a lot. And what do brewers do with the contaminated wastewater afterwards? They can’t just pour it down the drain, but if they are savvy, they will give Cambrian Innovation a call. Cambrian has a process of treating water cheaply and effectively while creating biogas for energy as a bi-product. In fact, some of those brewers are even reusing their water to make more beer! Join William, Claire, and us to discuss taking water resources full-cycle.
