Brightmark Energy, a San Francisco-based energy and waste management company, has dropped the word “Energy” from its name and will be known simply as “Brightmark.”

The new name reflects the company’s mission to build a world without waste, as well as the outputs Brightmark produces other than energy, including clean water, wax, and the materials used to produce new plastics. Advanced plastics recycling, or plastics renewal, and renewable natural gas (RNG) via anaerobic digestion will remain at the core of Brightmark’s waste solutions.

Brightmark has previously made waves in the manure world through their numerous partnerships with 20 dairies in six states for manure-to-RNG projects using anaerobic digestion. Once all of these projects are operational, they will generate enough renewable natural gas each year to drive 5,100 18-wheeler trucks from San Francisco to New York City.
