Heineken's SmartDispense wins environmental award

23rd May 2016

Heineken’s beer and cider dispense system, SmartDispense, has scooped a top environmental award.

The system, which reduces energy use by 20% and water by 75%, was recognised at the Edie Environment and Energy Awards, winning the Environment Product Innovation award.

SmartDispense was developed following £5m of research, and is now in over 3,000 on-trade outlets across the country, cutting the environmental footprint and saving outlets around £2,000 a year on their bills.

 The technology also reduces the frequency of cleaning, slashing the cost of cleaning products.

 Simon Gray, Draught Dispense Development Coordinator, said: “SmartDispense not only cuts the overhead cost of every pint of beer and cider, but it also contributes towards every venues’ bottom line, by reducing energy costs and the amount of water used.

 “It’s great to get this national recognition as we are committed to installing more SmartDispense units across the country.  Together with our customers, we can help reduce the environmental footprint, and save our customers money.”
