Atlas Copco Donates Brewing Equipment to Colorado State University's Fermentation Science and Technology Program

Atlas Copco, a leading provider of sustainable productivity solutions, recently donated new brewing equipment to support Colorado State University’s (CSU) Fermentation Science and Technology Degree Program.

The oil-free air compressors, nitrogen generator, receiving tanks, electronic water drains and air filters will be used to keep the University’s campus brewery running efficiently and support research that requires specific anaerobic environments.

“Supporting education and developing future leaders has long been a commitment at Atlas Copco,” said Craig O’Neil, account manager for western region of the U.S. at Atlas Copco. “Our recent donation gives CSU students access to the state-of-art equipment to ensure they can produce the highest quality beer possible.”

Colorado State University celebrated the grand opening of the Lory Student Center on April 9, 2018, at the school’s on-campus Raskeller Brewery. The brewery opened last year on the lower level of the student union and serves beers produced by the CSU Fermentation Science and Technology program.

“Atlas Copco’s generous donation allows our program advisors the opportunitytodemonstrate exactly how brewing technology operates,” said Jeff Callaway, associate director of fermentation science and technology at Colorado State University. “Having the equipment in our campus brewery and classroom also allows our students to gain a better understanding of different compressor types and how they work to support brewing applications.”
