AB InBev supplying residual alcohol from 0% beer for ethanol production

February 18, 2019 |

In Belgium, AB InBev has teamed with Alcogroup to produce ethanol from the residual alcohol produced in the manufacturing process for alcohol-free beer. Three tanker trucks per week transport about 75,000 liters of residual alcohol for processing, or roughly one liter for every 85 cans of alcohol-free beer. That comes to about 8,500 cans of beer result in enough residual alcohol to produce 18 liters of ethanol. In Australia, the company uses the residual alcohol for making vinegar.
