Only about 2.5% of earth's water is freshwater, including 1.75% in glaciers, which are quickly melting, 0.75% in groundwater and soil moisture and only 0.01% in rivers, lakes and swamps. Recently many companies, operating in the agrifood sector, are investing in technologies capable of reducing water waste, especially considering the amount of water required to sustain this kind of economies. Still, many small businesses cannot afford to implement systems capable of reaching both an environmental effectiveness and an economic efficiency. The goal of this paper is to show the results of Reverse Osmosis' implementation in the brewing industry, enabling it to reach a circular economy model, that if implemented will help industries get closer to a Zero Water Waste Model. We evaluated a possible investment in this technology, focusing on Birrificio dell'Etna S.r.l. dynamic brewing company that wants to reduce water waste without sacrificing the income aspect. The real benefit of this technology is its inexpensiveness and effectiveness, capable of outclassing other obsolete filtration systems, such as Micro, Ultra and Nano filtration. Reverse Osmosis exploits a natural chemical process, making it possible to filtrate external substances between 0,001 and 0.0001 microns. With such discernments companies will finally be in line with consumer's needs, increasingly leaning on environmental issues. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
