Input to TWG on BAT Candidates for Breweries

The report presents new BAT (Best Available Techniques) candidates for larger breweries, malting companies and soft drink producers identified within the Nordic brewery sector. The report is prepared as a joint Nordic contribution to the Technical Working Group and is proposed to be used when a review of the BREF for Food, Drink and Milk Industries from 2006 is launched. Larger and IPPC relevant breweries have a production capacity exceeding 300 tons per day or 1,100,000 hl per year. The number of larger breweries and malting companies in the Nordic countries is 10 companies. 8 potential new BAT candidates and 2 emerging techniques are included in the report and all candidates have their origin in the Nordic countries. The BAT described in the report are related to a number of resource saving and optimisation solutions, e.g. like substitution of raw materials and processes, energy and water savings plus production of renewable energy based on brewery waste and side-products.

Hide / Show Abstract

Large sized breweries have increased focus on energy consumption, as energy is becoming a relatively higher proportion of total production costs. In a modern larger brewery the brewhouse may alone consume up to 50% of the total energy – if the brewhouse is classically configurated, and without heat recovery systems other than a wort cooler, which heats incoming brewing liquor in a counter flow.
