A few months back, we heard about Sierra Nevada Brewing Company's plans to begin using waste from its beer brewing process to make ethanol. That's great, but there's apparently more greening going on at the company's brewery in Chico, CA. The first two ChargePoint Networked Charging Stations from Coulomb Technologies have been installed at the plant and will be used by employees and customers that happen to own electric cars.
Beer. What can't it do? I mean, you can turn leftovers from the production process into ethanol or ethanol or even electricity ethanol. Want to hear something else? You can also turn it into ethanol. No, seriously. That's what the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and E-Fuel will do following today's announcement of a new agreement between the two companies to use discarded beer yeast to make high-grade ethanol.
