Welcome to the GreenWhey Energy Blog

This is an exciting time for the GreenWhey Energy team. For the past three years, we’ve been working hard to make our innovative waste-to-energy project a reality. We have worked with leading engineers, construction firms, financial consultants, government agencies, and innovators in the design of water treatment and electricity-generating equipment to build something never before seen in the dairy industry: an independent business that treats organic waste from multiple food producers and generates heat, fertilizer, and electricity. It’s been a long haul, but we’ve finally...
