The Denver Beer Company and The Clinic marijuana grow are teaming up to reduce their carbon footprint. As part of a pilot program, CO-2 gas will be captured from the brewing operations and will then be used to help marijuana plants grow faster. A company called Earthly Labs has created the process.
The gas is extracted from brewing tanks by a hose and is then frozen and liquefied. It's placed into 500 pound containers which are then delivered to the marijuana grow. The gas is fed into the flower houses of the pot operation and is absorbed into the plants. This acts as a fertilizer that help the plants grow fasted.
With recycling, both companies will be able to either reduce costs or find a new revenue stream
