Carlsberg Inaugurates Water Recycling Plant In Denmark
Carlsberg has inaugurated a new water recycling plant in Fredericia, Denmark, that recycles 90% of the water used in the facility.
The brewer claims that it is the most water-efficient plant in the world and will enable the group to reach its target to eliminate water waste globally by 2030.
The new facility will allow the Fredericia brewery to save more than 500 million litres of water annually.
Water consumption will be halved from the current requirement of 2.9 hl of water per hl of beer to 1.4 hl of water per hl of beer, Carlsberg added.
‘Water-Efficient Brewing Facility’
Philip Hodges, EVP Integrated Supply Chain at Carlsberg Group, said, “We are immensely proud to be able to unveil the world’s most water-efficient brewing facility. Water is a basic ingredient in all our products, so water resource management is a high priority.
“Our water to beer ratio has always been low. Now we are taking it a step further. By recycling process water in our production, we are virtually eliminating water waste.”
