Profit man made ecosystems
The alliance is pursuing the design and implementation of man made ecosystems tinspired by nature. Therefore, in the context of the beer industry, we want to shape a farm with a Microbrewery as a living ecosystem and strengthened their beer activities with sound water solutions.
By now, the Polen Farm has already implemented industrial ecology to produce the Legria Beer, which is 100% organic and it has been in the Bolivian market for almost 4 years. The waste of one industry feeds the other (eg. the brewery wastes are used as food for the farm animals, and the wastewater is treated employing an artificial wetland and then used for irrigation).
We are also using water as an agent of change. Therefore, we are employing concepts such as the Water-Energy-Food nexus, Integrated Water Resources Management, Nature-Based Solutions and Hydroinformatics. We believe in bottoms-up practices and economy of scale to solve global issues.
