Beer made from bread showcased at Expo

Brussels-based Belgian Beer Project 'locomotive' for local area

(ANSA) - Milan, October 7 - A beer made from recycled bread was presented at the pavilion of Milan newspaper Corriere della Sera at Expo on Wednesday.
    Babylone is a product of the recently established Belgian Beer Project (BBP), which has recycled over six tonnes of bread in six months. "Babylone is in its own way a unique Brussels invention that meets a present-day universal social challenge, that of waste," said Sebastien Morvan and Olivier Da Brauwere of BBP. Bread accounts for around 12% of all food waste according to statistics.
    BBP has enabled "the transformation of a social problem into a resource, bringing various actors together", Morvan and Da Brauwere continued. One year of research and development was needed to come up with a recipe that best combined the bread and the malted barley. The brewery is located in the Dansaert/Canale neighbourhood of Brussels, where BBP director Marion Lemesne said it is acting as an "economic locomotive" for the area.
