Environmental protection is one of primary cares of Banjalučka Pivara a.d. We have tried to bring negative impacts on air, water and land down to the lowest possible extent together with setting targets each year for utilization of natural resources and electrical energy.
By optimizing production processes, we have tried to develop practical steps that would, directly or indirectly, affect saving of materials, energy and water, thus decreasing utilization of resources in production. A whole range of activities have been undertaken with the aim to achieve our environmental policy goals:
Efficient waste management: by-products (spent grains, germs and waste yeast) are sold as cattle food, filtration agent kieselguhr is separated and disposed of at a landfill, surplus of CO2 is collected for reuse in production processes, solid waste (glass, paper, plastic and metal) are collected separately, at which a part of solid waste is sold to sub-contractors for further recycling and part is disposed of at the city landfill;
Decrease of energy consumption: systems and processes are daily improved with the aim to decrease energy consumption and record them per production unit;
Education, development of environmental protection awareness: employees of Banjalučka Pivara a.d. regularly attend environmental protection seminars and daily improve work practices in line with the latest findings.
