Beer from wastewater – level 1

30-05-2024 07:00

Reuse Brew is a special beer. It comes from wastewater.

A German brewery makes the beer. They clean the water in three steps: mechanical, biological, and chemical. These steps take out solid waste and bad things. The last step uses ozone and filters to make the water very clean. The water is cleaner than drinking water. The brewery then changes the hardness of the water to make better beer. People say that this beer tastes like normal beer.

In many parts of the world, there is often not enough water. Germany also has times with little water. Reusing cleaned dirty water helps with this problem. Using water again is good for our planet. And it makes good beer, too!

Difficult words: wastewater (water from homes and factories), solid (hard), reuse (to use again).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What process does the German brewery use to clean the wastewater before using it to brew their beer?
