Minnesota Pollution Control Agency offering big grants to breweries to reduce waste

Fresh Food In Garbage Can To Illustrate Waste

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) is currently offering grants for food waste reduction and toxic chemical use reduction at Minnesota breweries.

Grants up to $75,000 are available to minimize food waste, such as diverting spent grain that otherwise would be managed as solid waste.

Another $40,000 is available for alternatives to sanitizers and cleaners used in the beer-making process, other cleaning needs throughout a facility, and alternatives to BPA paper receipts.

Grant applications will be accepted through April 13. Breweries should contact Angie Bourdaghs (651-757-2176, [email protected]) with questions.
