Our scientists pursue tomorrow’s zero carbon solutions

Post-doctoral researchers at the Carlsberg Research Laboratory are using next-generation technology to bring us a step closer to a ZERO carbon future.

Post-doctoral researchers at the Carlsberg Research Laboratory are using next-generation technology to bring us a step closer to a ZERO carbon future.

In 2020, the talented members of our Young Scientists Community created a ‘digital twin’ brewery in close collaboration with colleagues from ISC and Baltika in Russia. This unique virtual tool will enable us to simulate new ideas, brewing techniques and energy-saving solutions at our breweries without disrupting current production. The scientists are already trialling interventions that could help our brewery in Ukraine cut energy use by up to 15%.

They are also evaluating early stage technologies with the potential to save energy and carbon at our breweries globally, including solar assisted brewing, heat pump integration and energy from spent grain.

Other examples of how we will achieve ZERO carbon footprint by 2030

Snap Pack. An innovation to reduce plastic

Snap Pack. An innovation to reduce plastic

We’re constantly trying to make everything about our beers even better. Snap Pack is one of the results. A world-first for the beer industry, this innovation took us three years to develop together with our partners.
