Vermont manure and brewery waste sugar waste stream has extremely high yields

July 21, 2014 |

In Vermont, a project which uses cow manure and beer brewery waste to create a high-sugar content waste stream has projected yields and energy balances comparable to other projects which have used direct sugar streams, according to the project’s USDA grant.

The Vermont Fuel Dealers Association was awarded a $51,000 grant in 2013 to research biofuel technology using algae during a news conference at the Nordic Dairy Farm in Charlotte. The waste streams from beer breweries and dairy farms create a nutrient-rich concoction that could grow algae, which can then be used to make clean biofuel, according to Anju Dahiya, president and co-founder of General Systems Research, who is the project’s director.
