PETERBOROUGH, ON – Karbon Brewing, a company that launched last year with “a mission to brew better beer for a better world,” has announced a partnership with Trent University to “research and develop green brewing technologies for a carbon-negative future, while also collaborating on curriculum development and offering students hands-on, experiential learning opportunities.”
“This unique research collaboration between a university and a brewery will see Trent and Karbon driving discovery and innovation for brewing sciences,” said Dr. Cathy Bruce, vice president of Research & Innovation at Trent, in a statement. “Brewing chemistry, water conservation, experiential learning, and curriculum development are all on the Trent-Karbon horizon. From the lab to the marketplace, we see a range of interdisciplinary collaborative opportunities with Karbon.”
“By collaborating with Trent University, we plan to lead the green revolution in brewing,” added Karbon co-founder Stephen Tyson. “Our goal is simple – we want to produce great beer with as little impact on the environment as possible. And we want to spur conversations around climate change. In Trent, we have found a like-minded partner that is passionate about developing innovative solutions to climate change.”
As part of this partnership, Karbon is also exploring the option of opening a 30,000-square-foot brewery, brewpub, and research facility at Cleantech Commons, a hub for clean technology research and innovation that is being established on the Trent campus in partnership with the City of Peterborough.
