Project title

Sustainability of Craft Breweries in Wales


Dr Eifiona Thomas Lane & Dr David Styles


MBA Environmental Management, Bangor University


The focus of this PhD will be to look at the sustainability of craft breweries in Wales. The work will aim to measure the environmental footprint of small scale brewing. A Life Cycle Analysis approach will be used to map all inputs and outputs associated with all stages of the value chain of brewing. This will then be used to measure the Carbon, Water and Land footprint.  The second aspect of this work will be to measure socio-economic advantages of locally produced craft beer and how that benefits the local economy.  


Having grown up in North Wales I completed an electrical apprenticeship in 2001 and worked as a self-employed Electrical contractor in the building and construction industry. In 2009 I moved in to industrial automation working in the brewing, food and dairy, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. In 2013 I studied MBA in Environmental management at Bangor University graduating in 2015.
