At Asahi Breweries, we’re pouring effort into the development of new, environmentally-friendly ways of brewing by developing technology to reduce CO2 emissions during manufacturing, by purchasing green power, and by introducing solar energy generation facilities.
At our Hakata and Nagoya factories, we’re working hard to develop new beer-making processes that use natural energy. With gratitude for the blessings of this planet on which we live, we’re striving towards environmentally-friendly brewing processes. Environmental efforts add to the quality of SUPER DRY.
The outline of Nagoya factory
At our Nagoya factory, new solar energy generation facilities were introduced starting in early February, 2010. The system, with 80 panels and a total area of 106 square meters, generates approximately 15,855 kWh of electricity per year.
The outline of Hakata factory
At our Hakata factory, we’ve established the largest solar energy generation facility of any beer factory in the country (solar energy capacity/120kW). The 654 panels installed on the factory roof generate approximately 150,000 kWh of electricity per year.
