Recycled Energy Development to set up CHP projects at Dean Foods

FBR Staff Writer Published 01 June 2012

Recycled Energy Development (RED) has announced that it has won a contract to set up combined heat and power (CHP) projects at Dean Foods’ facilities in City of Industry, California, and Franklin, Massachusetts.

Each project will produce approximately 2.0 megawatts of electricity and 4.5 MMBtu/hr of thermal energy from clean natural gas.

The CHP systems will provide clean, efficiently generated energy to Dean Foods' processing facilities. By recycling waste heat, the units will help Dean Foods achieve its targeted goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20% from its 2008 baseline, part of the company's Environmental 2013 Roadmap.

Recycled Energy Development chief executive officer Sean Casten said the company looks forward to helping Dean Foods lower its costs, improve its efficiency, and achieve its sustainability goals.

"Recycled Energy Development's proven track record capturing waste heat will help Dean Foods meet its business objectives in ways that also are right for the environment," Casten added.

Recycled Energy Development develops, owns, and operates power projects that harness waste energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and power costs.

Dean Foods is a leading food and beverage company in the US and a European leader in branded plant-based foods and beverages.
