Sustainable Solutions for Breweries Through Water Purification Technology
Sep 28, 2014 06:48PM
Brewmasters are concerned over water shortages within certain drought areas of the US, right at a time when they are preparing for Oktoberfest 2014 (September 20 through October 5). The drought is having a significant impact on the beer business – in more ways than one. In addition to the volume of water needed to produce beer, water quality has become a critical issue. On average, four to seven gallons of water are used to make one gallon of beer. Discerning beer drinkers also know that purity of the water is one of the main ingredients needed to give their favorite beer its subtle flavors.
The Florida-based (Sarasota) AquaNew, LLC uses an advanced water purification system for producing its premium ultra-pure bottled water. AquaNew CEO Rob Gourley says, “I realize that it may sound unusual that, as a bottled water manufacturer, we can offer an innovative solution to the beer industry. The breweries, interested in advancing their water conservation programs should, consider our technology, which can be more economical and effective in both the recovery and reduction of waste water volumes.”
AquaNew hopes to work with brewers in integrating its advanced energy efficiency, water conservation and other money-saving solutions into the production of beer.
AquaNew, LLC is located in Sarasota, FL. and holds the worldwide exclusive license on the technology to manufacture Polarized Water. The first bottled water product, Watt-Ahh®, was launched in the commercial market in November of 2007. AquaNew’s Water is a key ingredient in a variety of consumable products manufactured by other companies. AquaNew reminds consumers to Drink Alcohol Responsibly.
