It’s known for its caramel color and fizzy goodness, but Coca-Cola may soon be known for its dedication to alternative energy sources as well.

The Coca-Cola/Mas Energy Trigeneration Facility in Atlanta has proved itself to be a leader in renewable energy through its partnership with the Hickory Ridge Landfill in nearby Conley, Ga. The landfill features an off gas (siloxane destruction) flare from ABUTEC.

Siloxanes are non-toxic compounds that are frequently added to consumer products, such as detergents, shampoos, deodorants (to improve texture and feel), cosmetics, paper coatings and many textiles. Their use in consumer products has increased over the past decade, resulting in a rise in the concentration of siloxanes at landfills worldwide.

The entire system took 15 months to construct and began operation on March 31, 2012. It was recently recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership as the third-largest on-site green power generator in the U.S.

ABUTEC is proud to play a part in this massive undertaking by Coca-Cola/Mas Energy.
