2 Brewery Sustainability Improvement
Agenda Corporate Goals/Leadership Brewery Processes Brewery Utilities Opportunities Waste to Landfill Culture

3 Corporate Sustainability Goals
Energy Usage of 120 MJ/HL by 2015 Electricity Steam Vehicle Fuel Water Usage of 3.18 HL/HL by 2012 Zero Waste to Landfill by 2015 CO2 Self-Sufficiency of 85% by 2015 50% Reduction in Green House Gas by 2020 Why Sustainability? Customer Demand Continue our Business Save Money Marketing Responsibility for Future Generations!

13 Utilities for Brewery Operations
Ammonia Steam Electricity Plant Air Water Treatment Wastewater Treatment CO2 Recovery Power Plant – Co-Generation Coal and Natural Gas Fired Boilers 800 LB Steam Electricity 400 LB Steam 50 LB Steam

14 Utilities – Map of Valley

15 Utilities – Where does the Steam Go?

16 Resource Savings Opportunities




20 Steam Savings Opportunities
“Low Hanging Fruit” Leaks Traps Control Valves Pressure Relief Valves Process Optimization/Team Work Compression Equipment Operation Problem Solving Metering - Short-Interval Control Set Points CIP Times Quality/Efficiency Projects HVAC Plant Air Refrigeration Brew Kettles


22 Plant Air Opportunities
Leaks Operations Compression Equipment Set Points Small Projects Cabinet Cooling/Pressure Air Shut-Off on Equipment not Operating Low Pressure Uses Condensate Drains Pneumatic Valves and Equipment Large Projects Decentralization Distribution Headers

23 Condensate Return Benefits Where is it Going? Cost Energy
Waste Treatment Water Treatment Where is it Going? Sewer Stack Steam Leaks

24 Utilities – Where does the Electricity Go?

25 Resource Savings Opportunities

26 Electricity Savings Opportunities
Culture Lights Office Equipment Phantom Energy Process Optimization/Team Work Metering/Short Interval Control CIP Times Pump Control Hard Shut-Downs Operating Strategy Water Usage Quality/Efficiency Projects Pump VFD’s Controls Equipment Right-Sizing Facilities HVAC Insulation Electricity Savings Opportunities No! Yes!

27 Electricity Savings Opportunities Malting Lights Results

28 Electricity Savings Opportunities BOC HVAC Recommissioning Results

29 Electricity Savings Opportunities Packaging Green Shut-Down

30 Utilities – Where Does the Water Go?

31 Resource Savings Opportunities
Water and Wastewater


33 Savings Opportunities – Water and Wastewater
Save Water = Save Energy! “Low Hanging Fruit” Leaks Controls Nozzles Team Work/Process Optimization Problem Solving Broom Not Hose CIP Times Cleaning Machines Dry Lube Seal Water Quality/Efficiency Projects Re-Use Once-Through Cooling Water Empty Can Rinse Water Reject Can Conveyance

34 Waste to Landfill Currently ReUse or Recycle >98% of Total Waste
Spent Grain Yeast Ethanol Still Glass Cans Single Stream Industrial (Paper, Cardboard, Stretch Wrap, Metal) Still, 100 Ton/Month to Landfill (2010) Goal – Zero Waste in 3 years (or pretty close) Sort, Label, Color Code Optimize Collection Source Reduction



37 Co-Products Golden Brewery
Bill Coors: “Waste is Just a Resource Out of Place” Yeast – 12 MM LBS/year Fuel Grade Ethanol – 2.5 MM gal/year Spent Grain – 400 MM LBS/year All sold locally Grain Dust Malting Malt Storage Grain Load-Out Brew House

As a first step to make the Golden Brewery “The Largest Zero-Waste-to-Landfill Brewery in the World”, we need your help to: sort recyclables from the trash created at the brewery paint examples of our new standardized color-coding system of lugers/dumpsters draw up facts about trash and recycling at our brewery to create a great display RSVP on the Volunteer Website ( What:  Operation Zero Waste CARE & Volunteer Event When:  Thursday, Sept. 15th  Sorting: 7am – 8:30am 8:30 am – 10am Visit and learn: 1pm – 4pm Where:  Pavilion at Investment Recovery What to bring: Pants, long sleeved shirt, PPE (bump-cap, steel-toes, safety-vest, and Kevlar gloves) Pavilion at Investment Recovery Employee Sales / Beer Trailer



41 Culture and People What is Culture?

42 Culture – What is Culture?
Definitions: The quality in a person or society that arises from a concern for what is regarded as excellent in arts, letters, manners, scholarly pursuits, etc. That which is excellent in the arts, manners, etc. A particular form or stage of civilization, as that of a certain nation or period: Greek culture.
