IT’S ‘BRILLIANT’ – CUSTOMER FEEDBACK ON ENZYBREW, ECO-FRIENDLY DETERGENT

ENZYBREW 10 is an all-in-one, eco-friendly cleaning product from Realzyme, available now from NicheSolutions.

Specially designed for the daily cleaning of microbrewery equipment, it’s an enzyme-based powdered detergent rather than a traditional caustic-based cleaning solution.

We asked Lorenzo, head brewer at Redchurch Brewery, for his thoughts after trying out the new product:

“Regarding the Enzybrew, I’m more than happy to share my feedback,” Lorenzo replied. “We tried it cleaning our Underback / Heat-exchanger / Carbonation stones. We found the result brilliant: the underback was shiny as new.

“The enzyme is very effective on Biofilm and tiny places, so I would suggest to run an occasional enzymatic CIP on fermenters, heat exchanger and sensitive areas to protect the brewery from contamination origins.

“Other positives points are that it is not dangerous for the operator and it is environment-friendly.”

Enzybrew is proving popular with brewers because it’s an eco-friendly, all-in-one detergent, cutting your costs as it works on biofilms as well as all the organic residues encountered during the production of beer.

— ENZYBREW 10 is ideal for the deep, safe cleaning of filter plates, wort cooler and maturation, boiling and fermentation tanks.
— As a natural, non-caustic detergent, it’s safe to use alongside other cleaning products such as those which contain chlorine.
— And because it works at much lower temperatures, it’s more energy efficient.

KEYKEG COLLECTION FOR RECYCLING – COSTS & CRITERIA

We are now collecting 20 and 30 litre KeyKegs, and returning them for recycling as part of the eco-friendly One Circle initiative. We will be separating the different materials (PET and HDPE plastics), compacting and baling them to be returned to Lightweight Containers, the manufacturer.

NicheSolutions and Lightweight Containers do not make any profit from the scheme. Our goal is to alleviate the problem disposing of large quantities of KeyKegs in an eco-friendly manner.

Our charges and collection criteria are in line with those of all contractors contributing to the One Circle initiative:

– For existing customers, collection and processing will be at a charge of £1.00 per KeyKeg. Minimum collection 36 kegs on a pallet and shrink wrapped. We will collect when we are in your area.

– For businesses that are not current customers of NicheSolutions (GB) Ltd, a charge of £1.40 per KeyKeg will be applied. Minimum collection of 36 kegs on a pallet and shrink wrapped. We will collect when we are in your area.

– For existing customers that require an additional uplift when we are not in the area, additional charges will apply.

– Collections are to be booked in via ordersniche@aol.com with exact quantities

– Date and time of collection will be confirmed via email

**It is essential that all kegs booked in for collection are empty. KeyKegs still containing any beer will not be collected. Kegs should be depressurised but not crushed.**

ECO NEWS: KEYKEG COLLECTION AND RECYCLING OFFICIALLY LAUNCHED!

You may have heard about it in the latest SIBA Journal or on the brewing industry grapevine – but now it’s here and ready for action. Our new eco-friendly compactor has been delivered and trialled (pics below), and is now hard at work crushing your used KeyKegs as part of the recycling process. We’re already collecting from breweries up and down the country.

The picture above shows NicheSolutions MD Paul marking the official launch of the OneCircle initiative along with Natalie from Lightweight Containers, who manufacture KeyKegs. It’s an eco-friendly landmark for both companies and for the industry as a whole.

As one of the main suppliers of KeyKegs in the UK, no longer will the 125,000+ plastic kegs we deliver every year go to landfill. Previously, breweries and bars have struggled to recycle KeyKegs because they are made from mixed elements. Even when collected for recycling, for this reason many KeyKegs have ended up being sent to landfill.

With a special new cutter, we’re separating the PET plastic outer shell of the KeyKegs from the HDPE base and rim, then the compactor reduces the shells to a flat form ready for recycling by Lightweight Containers.

The OneCircle initiative aims to create “a circular economy for complex compound thermoplastics including plastic kegs.” Working on a non-profit basis, NicheSolutions will be able to return materials from breweries to the manufacturer, and together we’ll be able to achieve 100 per cent “cradle to cradle” recycling.

Click here for information on our charges and criteria re: KeyKeg collection for recycling. 

It is essential that all kegs booked in for collection and are completely empty. KeyKegs still containing any beer will not be collected. Kegs should be depressurised but not crushed.
