Wastewater the Link Between Breweries and Batteries

Posted November 27, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Engineers at the University of Colorado Boulder have developed a bio-manufacturing process to turn brewery wastewater into naturally derived lithium-ion battery electrodes. The researchers opine that applying the process on a large scale will dramatically reduce municipal wastewater costs for breweries while creating a cost-effective process for making advanced battery components. A new Boulder-based company, Emergy, seeks to commercialize the patented process, which is detailed in this video.

I always thought that brewery waste water is what they used to make 40 ounce bottles of malt liquor.
