September 22 (SeeNews) - Romania's Ursus Breweries said on Friday that it has invested 2 million euro ($2.1 million) in an installation which recovers thermal energy from flue gas at one of its breweries.
The installation will reduce the Buzau brewery's natural gas consumption by some 18%, thus lowering the associated carbon dioxide emissions, Ursus Breweries said in a press release.
"Following the investments made so far, Ursus Breweries' carbon emissions have decreased by 50% in 2022 compared to the reference year 2019. We're just getting started: the investment in Buzau was successfully completed in the summer of this year and represents a step forward in reducing carbon dioxide emissions in our factories to zero," said Robert Uzuna, Vice President of Corporate Affairs of Ursus Breweries.
Last month, Ursus Breweries signed a multi-year virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) with Austrian green electricity provider Enery.
Bucharest-headquartered Ursus Breweries has been controlled by Asahi Breweries Europe since 20217. The company owns breweries in Timisoara, Buzau, Brasov and a mini-production facility in Cluj-Napoca, according to its website.
