  • Bottled Water Containers Make Up Just 33 Percent Of All Beverage Containers In Landfills
    are much higher for the glass 66 7 aluminum 7 9 and soda bottles 13 3 that end up in landfills Data for Bottled water PET containers was put up against PET for carbonated beverages aluminum cans glass bottles cardboard cartons foil pouches aseptic boxes and HDPE jugs and reusable containers First we examined the tons of mismanaged packaging i e the containers that go into landfills instead of being recycled said Mr Hogan Its important to note here that nearly all beverage containers are 100 percent recyclable and should be recycled not placed in landfills According to the most current data from the Container Recycling Institute s CRI signature analysis of beverage container sales and recycling rates Bottled Up 2000 2010 Beverage Container Recycling Stagnates 9 315 million tons of beverage container packaging was wasted i e ended up in landfills in 2010 But within that number PET containers for bottled water with an average weight of 9 89 grams make up only 0 308 million tons PET for carbonated drinks packaging weigh considerably more 23 9 grams due to the need to use heavier plastic for carbonation and thus totaled 1 239 million tons In October 2015 Beverage Marketing Corporation published data showing that from 2000 2014 the average weight of a 16 9 ounce single serve PET plastic water bottle declined 51 percent to 9 25 grams Bottled water s critics also commonly misrepresent environmental facts when they want to disparage bottled water products said Mr Hogan In one often seen example they cite energy use and greenhouse gas emissions numbers comparing bottled water packaging to oil use and car emissions Again we researched the facts to compare bottled water s PET containers against the previously identified seven most common drink packages The quest was to determine the environmental impacts of each packaging type Using the CRI report we discovered that PET plastic for bottled water containers has the smallest footprint when you consider energy used to make the container greenhouse gas emissions and recyclability rate While foil pouches and aseptic boxes use slightly less energy to make both of those packaging types are not easy to recycle and in some locations they are impossible to recycle sending nearly all of these post consumer drink packages to the landfill Thus we made a very slight environmentally unfriendly adjustment for foil pouches and aseptic boxes Mr Hogan said articles misrepresenting bottled water s impact on the environment were too numerous to count and often fueled by campaigns of misinformation organized by anti corporation adversaries We re hoping this new infographic will help get the fact out to consumers up so that they can make smart choices about packaged beverages he said We hope that people will help us spread the truth about bottled water s recyclability and environmental impact Please share this infographic with your friends and family Click http www bottledwater org public Packaging 20infograph 20for 20online 20SM jpg For more information visit www bottledwater org About

  • Northern United Brewing Company Installs Cambrian Innovation’s EcoVolt Mini
    therms of heat per year The system will eliminate over 65 metric tons of CO2 per year the equivalent of planting over 50 acres of trees every year This initial installation will support an expansion of NUBC s production of more than 40 percent We were stuck between a rock and hard place we wanted to make more beer to meet growing demand but our community s treatment plant capacity was tapped out said Northern United Brewing Company CEO and CFO Tony Grant With the City s and State s help we are bringing wastewater management in house with an innovative system from Cambrian We re excited to expand our production and we re proud to do our part to reduce pressure on the community s water system Compressing the revolutionary bioelectrically enhanced EcoVolt Reactor and the EcoVolt MBR into one prefabricated module the EcoVolt Mini is an all in one water reuse container Designed for food and beverage producers that are generating under 15 000 20 000 gallons of wastewater a day the Mini rapidly removes over 99 9 percent of pollutants and solids from the waste stream producing reusable water and renewable biogas The system is designed to be automated cutting down on operating expenses and saving businesses the headache of dealing with their wastewater This project is the result of a strong collaboration to adopt and implement the right solution not only for NUBC but also the community said Cambrian CEO Matthew Silver The EcoVolt Mini s compact design brings our EcoVolt product line to smaller scale operations that still want the big benefits of advanced wastewater treatment At current levels the waste stream resulting from the NUBC brewing process uses a significant amount of the industrial capacity in the City of Dexter s municipal wastewater treatment system preventing new food beverage or agricultural businesses from setting up operations in Dexter This venture between Cambrian and NUBC which will knock down barriers to business growth within the region is funded in part by the Michigan Department of Agriculture Rural Development MDARD through the Strategic Growth Initiative Grant Program This project is timely and very important stated Dexter Mayor Shawn Keough Capacity constraints have not only capped NUBC s growth but they have affected the City s ability to operate our plant efficiently The solution developed by Cambrian and Northern United will hopefully free up capacity in our treatment system and reduce our operational challenges We are excited to see the positive effects of this new technology We anticipate that this project will be a model that can be deployed across the State of Michigan There are hundreds of food beverage and agricultural producers in Michigan who face the same challenges as NUBC said MDARD Agriculture Development Division Director Peter Anastor Cambrian s innovative solution helps food and agriculture businesses grow and relieves pressure on our public infrastructure NUBC s EcoVolt Mini is scheduled to be installed during the spring of 2016 About Cambrian Innovation Cambrian Innovation solves
