Green roofs, clean Water: Duvel's Puurs expansion
Duvel Moortgat has recently invested in a state-of-the-art ultrafiltration reverse osmosis installation at the site in Puurs-Sint-Amands. This allows us to further purify wastewater to almost drinking water quality, ready to be used as process water. The brewery is currently expanding and optimizing our water piping network so that we can supply ever more processes with this recycled water. Last year, 6.54% of the total water demand at the brewery in Puurs-Sint-Amands came from its own recycling plant, a figure that we are aiming to increase to 20% by the end of 2023.
On the roofs of the office buildings in Puurs, we also aiming to maximize the green surface areas, as this contributes to better water drainage and buffering, while at the same time improving biodiversity and providing extra insulation to the buildings.
