We offer free environmental assessments to raise awareness on the environmental impacts of brewing beer. We also provide brewers with pollution prevention strategies.
We perform free, on-site assessments at breweries. We have discovered some pollution prevention techniques and identified some opportunities for breweries to become more environmentally-friendly.
Best Practices in most breweries:
Unique ways to prevent pollution in breweries:
Offsetting grid-supplied electricity with photovoltaic solar arrays.
Routing the waste CO2 from fermentation to an aquarium that grows a special strain of algae. The algae are used by an external company to develop sustainable printer ink.
Practices that could be started at more breweries:
Starting a leak detection program for air and water.
Installing motion sensors on lights in low traffic areas such as a warehouse or a fermentation room.
Switching to a waterless canning line that uses an "Ionized air-rinse."
Participating breweries include Avery, Asher, Breckenridge, Crazy Mountain, Great Divide, Horse and Dragon, Left Hand, Purpose and Upslope.
