As the craft brewery production industry in the UK continues to boom with the market size growing 3.2% per year on average between 2017 and 2022, the importance of sustainable practices has become essential for businesses looking for long-term success.
The boom in the industry isn’t surprising when its reported that the average annual beer consumption in the UK is reported to be 70.3 litres per person.
What is Brewery Wastewater?
Brewery wastewater is a byproduct of the brewing process and consists of spent grains, yeast, hops, and other organic materials. This mixture contains a high amount of organic pollutants and can adversely affect water quality if not managed properly. Especially as water makes up around 90% of the finished product and it’s used extensively in various stages of the production process, creating a mass amount of wastewater that needs to be correctly disposed of.
Carlsberg, one of the big four large companies dominating the UK beer market have launched their ‘Together Towards Zero’ initiative where they aim to reduce the consumption of water by 25% by 2022 and halve it by 2030. Heineken have a similar project called ‘Our Every Drop Strategy’ which is built around three principles: water efficiency (using as little water as possible); water circularity (cleaning and reusing water); and water stewardship (supporting watersheds to absorb more water).
