Energy start-up firm shares plan for future at Aspen event
August 4, 2010
ASPEN – An innovative clean energy company with strong ties to the Roaring Fork Valley will share its story in a presentation in Aspen Saturday.
Novus Energy President John Offerman will speak about the company’s procedures that convert non-food waste into transportation fuel, clean water and organic fertilizer. His presentation will be from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the Mountain House, 905 E. Hopkins Ave. in Aspen. Space is limited to 30 so reservations should be made by calling Robin Waters at 927-3732.
Offerman said the company has invented a system that can use any organic matter that isn’t toxic to bacteria, and convert that matter into energy.
The company was created in 2005. It’s working on contracts with multiple partners for projects in the U.S. and abroad, according to Offerman.
He estimated that 50 of the 180 current investors in the company hail from the Roaring Fork Valley.
