Dr Scott Davies spoke to journalist Peter Ranscombe about brewers and distillers being the pioneers of biotechnology and how Briggs of Burton has a long history of supporting its customers by leveraging microorganisms to produce fermentation-based products. The article explores the potential for breweries and distilleries to consider the production of other fermentation-based products with their existing operations. Briggs has worked on many projects around the world, using its process engineering know-how and project delivery experience in engineering systems from propagating and growing yeast for distilled spirits, beer and bread production, to hygienically scaling up fermentation processes to producing liquid biofuels.
