Carlsberg Denies It, But Tests Show Its Nepal Brewery Is A Polluter

March 10, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Carlsberg has admitted to creating air and water pollution problems near its brewery in Nepal, but claims that an upgraded water purifying plant at the facility – along with employee education on avoiding soot particle pollution – has solved the problem. Not so, according to research conducted the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) and investigative media company Danwatch, which collected water samples near the brewery. The samples, presented to pollution experts, confirmed massive pollution in one one of the biggest rivers in the country caused by the Carlsberg brewery. “The tests show that the river is contaminated in connection with the brewery and there is a risk that fish will die from lack of oxygen,” said a professor and wastewater expert at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
