BTW, if you go to Mexico, don't drink the water obviously, but don't use ice either! Seems obvious, but people forget.

Well, Elizabeth I would say it is another benefit. Not sure if it's more beneficial than it's intent, but a good use. We probably wouldn't be here without beer!

Haha, Cadman-LT, well i think many people would say beer is good for a lot of things, but it's quite interesting it's being used to make energy, and it seems to be one of the more beneficial uses of it!

This girl used to sing this song to me "beer is good for you" I guess now it's good for more than just us.

Haha, Cadman-LT, i didn't even think of the headline that way, but it is quite funny! I suppose I do the same. ;) But I am glad the headline caught your eye, because it was meant to. Ecovolt's not wasting beer, though--it's the stuff that isn't used in beermaking (which itself is waste) that is being leveraged for energy. Let's make that clear--we wouldn't want anyone to waste beer! ;)

Thanks for that information, tekochip. I hope it answers William's question. Perhaps it is a bit early to see the real results for the project but at least it has made it out of the lab and is being used commercially.
