Increasingly, we are all facing rising energy costs, stricter environmental regulations or even taxes on energy or emissions. There are many ways to address the rising costs in the field of energy management and environmental technology.With consistent and structured optimization of brewing technology and plant equipment it is possible to cut energy costs and meet legal requirements in a commercially viable manner. Each energy management project begins with an assessment of the current state of the brewery with respect to energy and material flows.
Given ever rising energy costs and with our focus on green breweries we have developed a brewhouse aimed at reducing operational expenditure (OPEX) and investment required for utility plants. The perfect brewhouse 2.0 consists of a traditional mashing and lautering process with a mashing in cycle of 40 min. This reduces batch sizes and thereby utility peaks.
Energy Storage System - ESS
With the energy storage systems developed by GEA it is possible to recover energy during wort boiling as well as to access surplus energy at the wort cooler for use in the brewhouse. This is achieved by using a vapor condenser with classical energy storage tank or with our energy storage system 2.0 an open system which facilitates the management of the hot water surplus as well.
