The Effect of Waste Side-Streaming on Brewery Effluent Strength

Craft Brewers Conference 2021
Location: Denver, Colorado
Speakers: Eric Ritchson, Ann Spevacek

Join us as we discuss our journey to achieve wastewater compliance with our local Publicly Owned Treatment Work (POTW). Efforts to be discussed include: installation of a new wastewater pretreatment system onsite (including automated pH adjuster and screw press solid separator), as well as aggressive side-streaming efforts to divert waste streams. Our goal is to share lessons learned and to help reduce the learning curve for other breweries on a similar path to compliance.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how and why brewery waste impacts the environment and downstream treatment plants
  • Gain a detailed understanding of various pretreatment options and why we selected our pretreatment equipment over other options
  • See data supporting the impact of specific brewery waste streams on critical parameters, with justification for diverting specific brewery waster from the sewer
