As the craft beer market gets larger, breweries in Michigan and across the country are growing and expanding their production lines. But that growth comes at a cost. More beer equals more wastewater, and wastewater costs a lot of money to get treated. However, in Michigan, one local brewery has found its own solution.  And one researcher is studying how algae could potentially transform this wastewater into fertilizer, medicine or even fuel.


"GRAND RAPIDS, MI – A lot of people visit Grand Rapids just for its craft beer - to the tune of a $12.23 million economic impact. A recent study commissioned by marketing group Experience Grand Rapids concluded that more than 42,000 beer tourists visit the city annually, spending $7.05 million directly at craft breweries. Of those visitors, more than 13,000 are from outside Michigan. (MLive)
