In the summer of 2013 an exciting class is taking place at the Illinois Institute of Technology, through their Interprofessional Projects Program. The class title is Business Study of Alternative Uses of Brewers. It is a class exploring the alternative and green uses of spent grain, which is a by-product when brewing beer and created by brewers across the country.
Kramer Tree Specialists will incorporate some of the spent grain into our leaf mulch product. Class students will then test the leaf mulch for nutrient content that is gained from the spent grain. The benefits from using the spent grain are numerous. Not only does it keep it out of landfills, spent grain contains many valuable nutrients that may enhance landscape soil.
Kramer Tree Specialists is thrilled to be involved in such an innovative study. For more information on the IIT class, please Click Here.
