IFF unveils sustainability calculator to help brewers boost efficiency

IFF has launched a pioneering Sustainability Brewing Calculator to simplify sustainable decision-making for breweries.


The new online tool, part of IFF's broader sustainability commitment, reveals how adjustments to raw material inputs can lead to substantial savings in water, energy, CO2 emissions, and land use for beer production.


Todd Krieger, sustainable solutions director at IFF, said: "Our Sustainability Brewing Calculator is a testament to our ongoing commitment to providing solutions that support sustainability at every level of operation."


Designed with both environmental and economic considerations, the calculator uses Life Cycle Assessment methodology and available sustainability data to simulate adjustments in brewing recipes, providing brewers with actionable insights.


"The brewing industry has long faced challenges in sustainability, particularly in energy and water use," said Karine Dedman, marketing category manager for brewing and distilling enzymes at IFF. "Our new calculator empowers brewers with precise, easy-to-understand data on the benefits of sustainable raw materials."


By inputting simple information, the tool's dashboard quantifies sustainability benefits in real terms, such as potential water savings compared to Olympic-sized swimming pools, energy savings compared to household energy requirements, CO2e savings compared to trees planted and land use savings compared to football pitches.


The calculator has already helped several breweries implement successful changes based on scientifically sound and practically viable recommendations, leading to significant operational improvements and cost savings.


In addition to the data-driven insights, the comprehensive report generated by the tool also includes a guide to IFF's enzymatic solutions, such as Laminex for improved beer filtration, Amylex for efficient starch conversion and Bclear for robust stabilisation.


"IFF is dedicated to pioneering innovations that help our customers succeed in their markets, and do so responsibly," Krieger added. "We invite all brewing professionals to explore how the Sustainability Brewing Calculator can make a difference in their production processes and environmental footprint."
