AB InBev invests EUR 20m in Belgian brewery - report.

(SeeNews) - Jul 5, 2011 - Belgian-based brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev (EBR:ABI) has invested EUR 20 million in the new heating plant for its Stella Artois brewery in Leuven, reported on Monday.

The new heating plant was officially inaugurated yesterday by Jo Van Biesbroeck, president western Europe of AB Inbev, and Louis Tobback, the major of Leuven.

According to AB InBev, the new heating plant is much more environment-friendly than its predecessor as it reduces the CO2 emissions by 5,000 tonnes per year and uses some 5%-10% less energy.

The major of Leuven said the investment is an important signal for the city. It has been speculated for years that the world's largest brewer is planning to significantly downsize its operations in Leuven or even completely leave the city.
