Abstract

This project serves as a continuation of the previous year's MQP research on the effluent waste stream of Wachusett Brewing Company (WBC). This year's team investigated temperature and pH of the brewery effluent and recommend solutions to any problems with non-compliance of local regulations. The team also generated alternative means to dispose of spent yeast, grains and trub, common waste products of the brewing process. Research was conducted to determine the best methods of disposal based on environmental impact, sustainability and cost.
