Water/Energy Conference for Brewers Issues Call for Presentations

CHICAGO, July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Save the dates of October 4-5, 2012 to learn about water quality, water conservation and alternative energy systems for breweries, with presentations by industry experts and speakers donating their time and expertise. The fifth Great Lakes Water Conservation Conference will be held in Chicago, IL and will be sponsored by Briggs of Burton, Inc.

Panels and presentations will feature installations for conservation, on-site wastewater treatment, alternative energy systems and more from breweries around the world. Presentations will be underwritten by sponsorships to help defray speakers' travel costs.

Why participate? Water policy in the Great Lakes region - the source of 20 percent of the world's supply of available freshwater - is changing rapidly. The Great Lakes Compact requires all water-intensive businesses within the watershed to implement water conservation practices. Through the sanitary canal in Chicago, IL, invasive species, including Asian carp, are infiltrating the Great Lakes. This affects water quality and tourism, both key to brewing and on-premise hospitality industries.

Presentations and panel proposals are welcome. View samples of past presentations online at http://www.conserve-greatlakes.com, and contact organizer Lucy Saunders at [email protected] or via voice message at 800-760-5998.
