Workshop will aid brewing industry
The University of Wolverhampton's project EnTRESS (Environmental Technology and Resource Efficiency Support Services) is running a free workshop event on June 13 looking at resource efficiency in brewing and distilling.
From Grain to Glass, which is being held in The Duke William, Coventry Street, Stourbridge, aims to raise awareness of environmental sustainability in the industry. It will highlight how resources such as water, grain and yeast can be utilised efficiently, thereby maximising profits and reducing environmental impact.
From the event the university hopes to develop partnerships with attendees for potential collaborations which will contribute to the resilience of local businesses and reduce their environmental impact.
The Faculty of Science and Engineering would also like to explore opportunities for the introduction of a course to nurture the next generation of brewery professionals.
Industry professionals are being invited to attend and speakers will include Professor Phil Cox, director of chemical engineering at University of Wolverhampton; Liam Cowburn - kegging manager at Marston's; Tom Barnett, project manager at Briggs of Burton and Matt Mellors, EnTRESS project manager.
It will run from 9.30am to 1.30pm at the pub which is home to Craddock's Brewery.
