Case Study: Golden Road Brewing

The Problem
  • Rising electricity costs
  • Increasing heating costs
  • Utility power outages that could damage product inventory and equipment
  • Disposal of wastewater generated from brewing
  • Environmental pressures
First Step: PTG Platform for Water-Energy Efficiency
  • Design and install a Combined Heat & Power (CHP) system to reduce electricity and heating costs
  • Fits into existing brewing process
  • Remote monitoring & real-time data trending
  • Reliable – No operator needed
  • Back-up power to eliminate utility blackout/brownout risk

Subsequent Steps: Build on PTG’s Water-Energy Efficiency Platform
  • Provide options to recycle water to reduce water usage and costs
  • Recycle disinfected wastewater for non-potable purposes such as cleaning, cooling and landscaping
  • Consider options to use existing facility biogas or other renewable, sustainable sources to fuel CHP system
