Following are a set of P2 options you may wish to implement. No option is perfect for everyone, but sometimes options that have worked at one facility can work at yours. They might also serve as inspiration.

Reviewed Microbreweries - Keg Cleaning Options

Options below have reviewed by pollution prevention specialists. They are commonly recommended and implemented for facilities.

Use collected beer for recycling
Beer left inside kegs which are returned to the microbrewery in kegs should be collected and mixed with the grain going out as animal feed or the trub going out to be used as fertilizer.
Treat wash water prior to discharge
Wash water from cleaning of kegs must be treated prior to discharge but can be minimized to a significant extent by implementing a well designed keg cleaning station.
