REDUCING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT THROUGH WATER CONSERVATION

Water is a critical resource in malting and how our sites manage water use impacts both the environment and public water systems. In March 2022, an Optisteep® system was commissioned at Great Western Malting’s Pocatello plant in Idaho to further evaluate its operational effectiveness, reduced water usage, and effluent reduction potential.
