Welsh brewery to be first powered by hydrogen in UK
They include investments in sectors such as wind and hydrogen energy, sustainable homes and carbon capture.
Budweiser Brewing Group’s (BBG) project is expected to be fully functional by 2024 and would see the first large-scale hydrogen generation system built at a brewery.
It told the BBC using hydrogen technology would help to provide zero-carbon power and fuel for all its operations in a bid to become carbon neutral.
The firm already powers its brewery operations in Magor from solar farms and an on-site wind turbine.
Mauricio Coindreau, head of sustainability and procurement at BBG, said energy solutions like hydrogen had “huge potential” in helping to cut the firm’s carbon footprint.
The group, the UK arm of global brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev, is working with UK-based hydrogen energy firm Protium, to deliver the plans.
