Ben & Jerry’s Factory Runs On Ice Cream (sort of)

More delicious goodness from Ben & Jerry’s. A new Ben & Jerry’s factory in Holland will soon be powered by ice cream. Well, partly. The factory in Hellendoorn will use a bio-digester to convert waste products such as milk, cream, syrup, and pieces of fruit into biogas that will cover 40% of the factory’s green energy requirements. It will use a bio-digester to do so. A new type of bio-digester, the BIOPAQ AFR (Anaerobic Flotation Reactor) for people keeping score at home, puts 24 quadrillion – or 24,000,000,000,000,000 – natural micro-organisms to work eating waste products and converting them into biogas.
