Malting sustainable + innovative part 2 Malting sustainable + innovative part 2 Presentation Transcript

  • Can steep water be re-used? Carbon Cost of Water Treatment Electricity for ROTREATING RECYCLED treatment FRESH WATER 1.23kg CO2 Use of WATER: SAVES: eq/tonne green1.2kg CO2 0.83kg CO2 electricity eq/tonne could offseteq/tonne this carbon cost CARBON COST CARBON COST? EXTRA 0.4kg CO2 eq/tonne A very delicate balancing act in Potential to save up to 70% of process water order to preserve BUT this comes at a carbon cost our planet’s resources
  • SWAN Project – 3 years ago looked unlikely, but now plants being installed Commercial Trial Was Successful! Membrane Bioreactor linked to Reverse Osmosis is an acceptable technology for producing recycled water for malting. Malts made with recycled water produced malts and beers of the highestWhy now? quality.Inability to discharge to local sewerLack of water supply Where? S Africa; Australia; China; Holland; UK

  • Muntons WIN!SustainableManufacturerof the Year 2011
  • Carbon Footprint Calculation: Barley to Brewery/Distillery(Scope 1 and 2) – Different methodologies agree well Fuel 17% N2O from Soil 35% N fertiliser 48% Overall only 6% different
  • Low Carbon Malt CommitmentWe are committed to producing 100% low carbon maltusing low carbon options to make a significant impacton our supply chain carbon footprint.WE HAVE CALCULATED OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
  • Why grow Malting Barley? MARKET RISK Niche Higher risk in market, locallyhitting spec and influenced quality YIELD LOCATION Distance from Lower yields maltings: require higher Most on the East premiums PRICE ROTATION Biggest driver Winter used toRISK / REWARD fit with other Area planted crops Supply HARVEST continuity SOIL TYPE PRESSURE Lighter land best Rapid move if Wolds; Norfolk OSR follows; Store availability

  • Compost, Biosludge, Sewage Sludge - aren’tthey all the same? NO!! Sewage Sludge if untreated is clearly a risky product If treated properly there is no reason to believe it is not safe to use IF CERTIFIED BUT… we are treading carefully and using the least controversial alternate fertiliser
  • Compost is not a waste if PAS100 Compost is analysed for the following: Pathogens: E. Coli, Salmonella Physical contamination: Glass, Stone, Plastic Weed seeds Metals: Cd, Cr, Cu, Pb, Hg, Ni, Zn Muntons specify PAS100 + We cannot accept composted material that has been derived from onions, leeks or garlic, or anything else that generates a strong taint
  • Influencing Farmers – changing perceptions 15% Convinced Uncertain 85%
  • Muntons Farming Carbon Footprint Calculator We used PAS 2050 to establish some ground rules Originally used the MAGB carbon footprint model Now enhanced that using the ECOINVENT database and LCA Selected the top 10 influencers on farm Purpose to demonstrate which actions are worthwhile and to get farmers involved in a practical debateLink to Muntons Environment Documents and the Farming Carbon Footprint Calculator:
