Spanish brewing company Mahou San Miguel has announced that it invested €2.8 million at its Beteta facility in 2016.
The plant, which is located in the Cuenca province, was subject to 31 different projects last year, aimed at modernising the production facility to boost reliability, performance and sustainability.
These projects included remodelling one of its PET packaging lines for Solán de Cabras water, and the installation of a real-time industrial software programme.
Since its opening in 2011, over €17.8 million has been invested in the plant, which has reduced its water consumption by 39%, energy by 26%, and CO2 emissions by 47% in the last six years.
In 2016, its efforts in this area focused on the development of products and packaging to make them more sustainable and reduce their environmental impact.
"Every year we strive to equip our facilities with the latest technology available to help us ensure that the excellent properties and purity of our product arrive intact to our consumers," said José Manuel Paniagua, director of Betata plant.
