An Oxfordshire brewery with large premises worked with EiE to identify opportunities for water savings in the brewing process.
EiE identified three areas where water savings could be made:
Large quantities of water were used in cleaning casks. The brewery reviewed nozzles, pressure levels, aim, and timing to improve the water efficiency of cleaning.
Inaccurate manual and semi-automated fill procedures at the brewery wasted large volumes of water. EiE advised on reviewing the filling procedures and identified automated processes to remove this wastage.
Sub-meters were also specified to help identify leaks within the production line. This represented a significant investment for the brewery. However, the improvements in efficiency resulted in a quick payback on investment.
