As it prepares to move into a new headquarters in Portland, Ore., Stumptown Coffee Roasters is partnering with a state energy trust for an emissions reducer that could drop the roaster’s monthly gas bill by a quarter.
According to a Portland Business Journal report, Stumptown plans to buy — with $200,000 from the Energy Trust of Oregon — a regenerative thermal oxidizer, or RTO, estimated to curb energy demand by 25 percent while scrubbing discarded air. The project represents the largest contribution ever made by the energy trust.
The project is funded in part by Energy Trust’s Production Efficiency Program, which is available to industrial customers of several of Oregon’s largest power companies.
Stumptown is planning a move to a new headquarters and roasting space on Portland’s E. Division St. on the city’s central east side.
