2G Energy Inc. Installs 600 kW CHP at Zero Waste Facility in Indiana: Kroger’s K.B. Specialty Foods using CHP to Turn Food By-Products into Energy

2G Energy Inc. recently commissioned a Combined Heat & Power (CHP) project in Greensburg, Indiana. The 2G avus 600 kW CHP is located at Kroger company’s K.B. Specialty Foods. Recently, Kroger announced a Zero Hunger | Zero Waste social impact plan that this project supports. The goal is to end hunger in communities Kroger serves and eliminate waste in their company by 2025.

The K.B. Specialty Foods in Greensburg, Ind., employs 270 associates and has been a Zero Waste Facility since 2014. In that time, they have diverted more than 90% of waste produced from going to landfill each year.

Along with a new anaerobic digester, K.B. Specialty Foods recently had the 2G Energy Inc. 600 kW CHP installed. This new system replaced a conventional wastewater treatment system and features a dome that captures biogas and the combined heat and power system that takes food by-products and work together to convert them into energy.

The 600 kW CHP was manufactured, installed and commissioned by 2G Energy Inc., headquartered in St. Augustine, FL. This is the second food waste installation that 2G has been part of in recent months. “CHP is an excellent solution for the food waste industry. We are glad to see growing interest in maximizing the benefits of what would otherwise be wasted materials to turn them into usable energy that benefits both our customer’s bottom line and the environment,” says Paul Glenister, President and CEO of 2G Energy Inc. “We pride ourselves on being a solutions provider and this project helps us showcase the solutions we offer to customers like K.B. who value economic and environmental efficiency.”
