Meet the Innovators in Elemental Excelerator’s Cohort 9
Rombauer Vineyards since 2007 has operated a crush, barrel storage and bottling facility in the warehouse. Richie Allen of Rombauer described water-saving steps the facility has taken and how the Cambrian system helps makes all of this possible.
“Cleantech Open was absolutely one of the things that kept us going. [It] really gave our team the belief that we could start a business, and their contribution to Cambrian in the form of seed capital was also crucial for us to launch in earnest.”
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.

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.”
