Case Study: Brewery Wastewater, Littleton, Colorado

The Problem:

The process of brewing beer results in a waste high in BOD/COD & TSS. Municipalities can become overwhelmed with the amount BOD/COD & TSS coming in, which results in a surcharge to breweries that discharge their waste above a set threshold.

The Solution:

AST designed a compact wastewater solution that combines aerobicbiological treatment with solids capturing to efficiently target the BOD/COD & TSS found in brewery waste,
and even reduces water loss up to 99% compared to similar technologies.

The Results:

After Implementing AST’s RCPG 10 Pilot recommendation, this brewery met the required discharge criteria for BOD/COD & TSS, reducing municipal surcharges.
