Biogas CHP System Powers Brewery

September 18, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

beer energy manageYuengling Brewery based in Pottsville, Penn., is operating a 2G CENERGY 400ekW/h CHP cogeneration power plant, serving about 20 percent of Yuengling’s total electricity needs at the brewery.

Methane gas is generated at the Yuengling Brewery wastewater treatment plant and at an anaerobic digester designed by Environmental Management Group.  2G CENERGY’s system cleans the raw biogas and turns this fuel into usable energy, which is used to provide electricity for the brewer. In addition, the heat generated by the plant heats the brewery’s beer pasteurization process.
