Lockport, NY – The Hudson Valley, while a beautiful region, has the unfortunate honour of having some of the most polluted water in the country. Instead of being part of the problem or waiting for further regulations, Round Table Brewery opened with clean and sustainable business practices right from the start. To meet their wastewater goals, they called on Econse for innovative technologies that empower them to minimize expenses, reduce environmental impact, and grow sustainably.

“Operating sustainably certainly isn’t the simplest choice, but in our mind it was the only choice,” says Ricardo Petroni, of Round Table Brewery. “We’re part of this community, so protecting its resources is a responsibility we take seriously. When it came to our wastewater, Econse was the perfect choice. Their system fits in the brewery, is simple to operate, and allows us to produce great beer without negatively impacting water in the region.”

Round Table Brewery has big plans for future growth, and the BrüClean System is able to grow with them. It is a scalable solution, making it ideal for start-up and established craft brewers, regardless of whether they’re on a septic or municipal water system.

“We designed BrüClean with small to medium sized breweries in mind,” says Derek Davy, CEO Econse. “Our compact, affordable solution treats wastewater on-site. It neutralizes pH, captures solids, and reduces nutrients like phosphorous more than 90% so that they don’t impact the environment.”

Breweries often struggle to meet wastewater bylaws because the brewing process varies so much depending on beer type, phase of brewing and other factors. “With the BrüClean System, we are able to meet strict local regulations and be a good neighbour, helping protect the Hudson Valley for future generations,” says Petroni.
