Spotlight 52: Making beer more tasty

52 beerBeer is getting tastier… thanks to film technology. Since the 1970s, Fujifilm has been working with beer producers in Japan to make draft beer tastier. The secret is a filter that removes yeast particles before draft beer is put into bottles or cans. Fujifilm was studying ways to put tiny holes in plastic film and ended up developing an amazing porous filter that allows liquid to pass through, but is able to capture particles less than one micrometer. Since the filter was able to remove the tiny yeast particles, it became possible to put draft beer in cans and bottles without the need for pasteurization. Fujifilm microfilters are used in many industries. They also provide ultra-pure water needed for making LCDs and other electronic components. More:
