When it comes to brewing beer, it’s not just energy costs and water that are expensive – so are hops. Given the annual uncertainty of the supply of alpha acid, which is extracted from hops and critical to beer’s bitter profile, brewers should rethink classic brewing processes to remain profitable, including how to use hop products more efficiently in the brewhouse and the cold block.
As consumers migrate towards healthier food choices, manufacturers of traditional savory and confectionery snacks are tasked with coming up with products that appeal to people’s shifting definitions of indulgence and “meal time” – and in a category with increasingly blurred lines.
Mine tailings are, potentially, the most environmentally hazardous part of any mining operation. GEA has developed diverse technologies that can significantly reduce the impact of tailings on the environment and help minimize water usage, while isolating and extracting valuable minerals which can become an additional revenue source.
In life, they say, there are no shortcuts. The same can be said for GEA’s approach to innovation – including its latest offering: the GEA CompaX – the world’s first semi-hermetic compact screw compressor designed for use with NH3, or ammonia chillers.
When it comes to food, you might think that there is nothing more traditional or unvaried as meat, which is the major source of protein for much of the world. But the meat universe is changing as a result of consumer and environmental demands, facilitated by industry innovations and new scientific breakthroughs.
‘Engineering for a better world’ means finding solutions to meet the challenges that our customers as well as consumers face. This requires a team effort and a continual influx of fresh ideas. For that very reason, training and preparing the next generation of professionals is a win-win for GEA, its customers and for society, and is a task that GEA takes very seriously.
Whether shared in the convivial company of others or sipped quietly beside a cozy fire, whisky, with its unmistakable rich amber color and complex flavors, evokes a unique sensory experience. And, it’s witnessing a rebirth.
Evaporating wastewater can be expensive and energy-intensive, but it doesn’t have to be. Some companies choose to evaporate wastewater because it is the only feasible option – but solving the wastewater issue is only one aspect. Manufacturers can actually recoup their investment within 3 to 5 years if they re-use the condensate as process water.
In times of greater self-sufficiency, when many people still lived on and from the land, having at least one or two milk cows was the norm. In addition to providing milk for drinking, the coagulated, thickened milk in its varying stages and forms provided high-protein sustenance throughout the day. Thanks to superior processing technology, we can enjoy many of these same tastes and traditions today – without having to grab the milking stool.
