Hydes Brewery introduces new environmental measures across operation

Salford brewer and pub retailer Hydes has announced a raft of new environmental initiatives which will be introduced across the business this year.

New environmental measures for the family-owned brewery include the installation of state-of-the-art inverter drives which control the speed of the motors during the constant brewing process to improve energy savings. A steam generator has also been installed which uses far less energy than other power sources.

The brewery has also been fully lagged with insulation material to maximise energy efficiency, LED movement sensor lights installed throughout and voltage optimisers added to use electricity at 230v allowing significant energy savings to be made.

Further additions to the brewery operation include plant automation reducing inefficiencies and downtime. EV charge points and all dray vehicles are fully solar panel battery powered.

Other initiatives to be implemented include the harvesting of rainwater inside the brewery for cask washing use and investment in an energy-efficient heat pump in the brewery for heating and cooling of the office space.

LED sensor lighting and EV charging stations have also been introduced at a number of Hydes’ pubs. A biomass boiler has been installed at the Stamford Bridge in Chester with the intention of introducing similar energy-efficient boilers to more Hydes pubs.

Adam Mayers, managing director (pictured) of Hydes, said: “We are focused on driving energy efficiency improvements with the brewery, production areas and across all sites. We are acutely aware that our brewery and pubs have a significant impact on communities and the environment, therefore we must work sustainably and responsibly to ensure we can safeguard the future of our business and protect the planet.”

Hydes, with its brewery in Media City, was formed in 1863 and supplies beers to wholesalers, pub companies and other brewers throughout the UK. The business celebrated its 160th anniversary last year.
