Abita was one of the first breweries in North America to install a Merlin Brewhouse. The Merlin Brewhouse cuts boiling time, cuts carbon dioxide emissions and uses 70% less energy than traditional brewing methods. Abita installed a bapor condenser to capture and reuse steam from the brewing process.
Abita operates its own waste water treatment plant and uses that plant to generate energy. They have a Bio-Energy Recovery System (BERS) that treats wastewater and creates bio-gass used to fire Abita's boilers. The brewery is also committed to water conservation and csolid waste reduction. They have equipped their delivery trucks with energy saving Auxillary Power Units that reduce engine emissions and operation when a truck is parked.
Abita has also installed 340 photovoltaic panels on the roof of its brewhouse capable of producing 84 kilowats.
