FX Matt Brewing to undergo $4m expansion
FX Matt Brewing, a New York-based family-owned brewery at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in Utica, is all set to kick off its $4m brewery expansion.
The environmentally-friendly expansion will include installation of five 35ft long anaerobic digester tanks from Philadelphia, which will break down waste materials into methane and other gases for use in the production of electricity and heat.
The brewery will use the reproduced energy created from new anaerobic digester to clean 80-90% of the brewery's waste water. The energy produced will also be useful for the Utica district and its Varick Street area.
FX Matt Brewing chairman and CEO Nick Matt told Your News Now that they use some geothermal heating, they do a lot of recycling, they capture CO2 from the fermentation and use it in the beers and they do a lot of things to try to be green.
FX Matt has also partnered with Suny ESF, a US-based institute that focuses on the study of the environment, to update the properties near the brewery and start a green-scaping project.
