MKE Startup News: With ETI, nothing goes to waste

Energy Tech Innovations, LLC (ETI) is one of the 26 companies vying for a win in the Wisconsin Governor’s Business Plan contest. Founded in 2015, this company has developed a simpler and more cost-effective way to create biogas, while commodifying the carbon dioxide that is a byproduct of the process.

As CEO and founder Bryan Johnson often says, “with ETI, nothing goes to waste.”

The startup garnered attention when it was a winner in The Water Council’s BREW (Business Research Entrepreneurship in Wisconsin) Accelerator program in 2016.

Today, Johnson, and his work, are well known in the Milwaukee water technology community. The company is housed inside the Global Water Center, and ETI’s first pilot technology demonstration occurred at Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District’s Jones Island wastewater treatment facility.  According to Johnson, the work was a success, in part because of the support from The Water Council and University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. “I involved UWM in process validation work where three of their students earned their master’s degrees by working with me during my technology demonstrations,” he said.
