Alchemy Holding, LLC, Stowe Brewery located in Stowe, VT was recently awarded the Outstanding Industrial Facility Award.
Green Mountain Water Environment Association presented the award to Alchemy Holding for its commitment to clean water and pollution prevention, including implementation of water or wastewater treatment changes to address frequent issues that arise within similar industries.
In 2016, World Water Works’ Ideal MBBR-DAF system was installed at Alchemist Brewery to handle wastewater and reduce the amount of BOD, TSS and total phosphorous discharged to the Stowe Wastewater Treatment Facility. The system reduces the biological oxygen demand of the water to equal the level of approximately five households. The brewery has invested nearly $1 million into wastewater treatment and remains diligent in performing pollution prevention practices to separate high strength waste during the brewing process.
