Maine Beer Company is deploying Chart Industries’ small-scale carbon capture technology to capture waste CO2 produced during the fermentation process, purifying it and reusing it to carbonate and package beer and purge tanks.

The Earthly Labs CiCi technology is a plug-and-play unit. It will enable the brewery to capture more than 1,500 trees worth of waste CO2 from the brewing process annually.

“We are proud to provide our technology to Maine Beer Company, a customer –with a showcase of great beer powered by people committed to taking care of the Earth,” says Earthly Labs CEO Amy George. “CO2 supply chains around the world continue to be challenged due to a turndown of existing production, and a transition to cleaner fuels. CO2 recovery solutions are, and will continue to be, essential to reducing risk and building a more sustainable brewery.”

Earlier this month, Chart announced it was collaborating with CarbonCure Technologies, Inc. on equipment for the storage and transport of liquid carbon dioxide with the utilization of Cryogenic Carbon Capture™ technology at concrete facilities globally.

Based in Freeport, Maine, the brewery was founded in 2009 by brothers David and Daniel Kleban. Its beers are sold in at least 32 U.S. states.
