Carlsberg apply for water supply and sewerage licence, probably

OFWAT has given notice that Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company (CMBC) has applied for a retail water supply licence and a sewerage licence but with a retail authorisation to self-supply, enabling them to provide retail services to itself or associated persons.

According to the notice, CMBC states it intends to use the minimum amount of water throughout the brewing process, and to make the most of every drop.

The company is confident it can reduce water usage by 25% this year, and by 2030 expects to halve water use per hectolitre (“hl”) of beer produced to use just 1.7 hl/hl, eliminating water waste.

CMBC states it is one of the newest, historic brewers in the UK. It is formed out of a joint venture between Carlsberg UK and Marston’s PLC, who are both shareholders and that these shareholders combine over 300 years of shared values, history and heritage in UK brewing.

The company recognises that reaching its zero targets will not be an easy task as currently many of the solutions for eliminating carbon and wastewater at its breweries do not exist yet. To address this, it explained that the Carlsberg laboratory in Copenhagen, consisting of the Young Scientists Community (which it considers are some of the world’s brightest postdoctoral researchers) is tasked with identifying new methods and technologies to meet its targets.
