Abstract

According to Cordella, Tugnoli, Spadoni, Santarelli and Zangrando (2008, p.\n Capturing methane - a by-product of the wastewater treatment process and a potent greenhouse gas - can also be used to generate electricity and provides up to 15 per cent of electricity needs of craft breweries. A focus on sustainability can result in a competitive advantage over less efficient companies and allow craft breweries to increase their profits at current product prices, or lower their prices to gain market share.
