Reducing water consumption and ensuring its continued availability

 

Our ambition is to produce more beer with even less water. We always want to improve and strive to cut back the amount of water we use per hectolitre of beer. At the same time, we will continue to work towards guaranteeing the availability of high-quality water now and in the future.

 

OBJECTIVES 2021

  • Beer/water effi ciency 3.27 hl/hl
  • Optimising the water consumption of the cooling system
  • Recalibrating the water reduction and availability plan
  • Optimising the water consumption of bottle rinsers
  • Study into water reduction opportunities across the brewery with University of Twente
  • Modelling water availability in the future
  • Testing membrane-based water treatment
