Press Room

Birko features a full line of specialty chemicals and dispensing equipment for the brewery and winery industries. We were the first company to introduce acid and non-caustic alkaline cleaning in the mid-1990s, later followed by acid- and detergent-only cleaning of bright tanks in 2011. As you cover product quality and safety for the beverage industry, please keep the experts at Birko in mind.

Birko’s experts can address:

  • Removing beerstones and other soil stains from metal in breweries
  • Reducing chemical usage and greenhouse gas (C02) with acid- and detergent-only cleaning
  • Reducing biofilms in the brewery
  • Increasing yields and head retention with antifoams
  • The advantages of non-caustic cleaning

In the Press Room, you’ll find bios of Birko’s chemists/microbiologists, and additional resources including a company profile.

Please feel free to contact us for more information or to arrange an interview.
