The "ideal" treatment of waste from beer (and not only) must respect the legal limits, produce the minimum possible quantity of sludge and recover the maximum possible amount of energy. Fluence offers an anaerobic solution on wastewater and sludge + aerobic wastewater treatment. The anaerobic solution uses a "Rapid" granular sludge digester. It is a digester in which a particular type of sludge capable of "granulating" grows and it is used for very low COD (> 2000 ֺmg / l) as long as the waste contains sugars or...
MANTECH’s innovative PeCOD Analyzer is helping Ontario’s craft brewers manage their wastewater more effectively. PeCOD is an integral part of the Brü Clean System, a specialized wastewater treatment process developed by Econse Water Purification Systems for the craft brewing industry. Together they helped reduce the amount of wastewater for treatment by 75 per cent. “We can accomplish in a few minutes what other companies take weeks or months to do and this lets us move straight to effective...
Brewery wastewater is generally polluted with two different classes of pollutants. In the direct brewing process, biological substances such as yeasts, starch or sugar compounds are increasingly introduced into the wastewater. By cleaning brewery plants (boilers, pipelines, etc.) and washing empties, large quantities of chemical cleaning detergents are also discharged into the wastewater of breweries.
Monitoring process streams and waste streams continuously in a brew house can provide many benefits to operations. Monitoring product in process for color or concentration provides consistency and quality measures. Product loss can be quantified by monitoring waste streams. Processes can be improved to increase efficiency and minimize effluent waste. Effluent waste streams can also be monitored for organic loading with BOD and COD correlations to ensure compliance for discharge.
Managing brewery wastewater shouldn’t be costly or complex. Surcharges and off-site hauling fees can be minimized using the BioGill scalable onsite systems. They are quick to install and easy to operate so you can get on with perfecting your latest brew. Using BioGill technology, brewers can benefit from significant savings in wastewater discharge costs and improved environmental operations.
Brewing Equipment Sanitisation: Chlorine dioxide is a safe and effective sanitiser for use in a variety of brewing and packaging applications. CleanOxide Chlorine Dioxide can be applied to water systems, processing equipment, and environmental surfaces to reduce or eliminate brewery spoilage organisms.
Achieve process control and water safety without the use of chemicals with HOD UV which does not impart a residual taste or odor to affect product flavor. Validated to regulatory standards for EPA and FDA with accredited validation for 4-log virus and 5-log microbial inactivation, HOD UV provides effective disinfection and biofouling control through automated operation and compliance reporting.
BioGill bioreactors are ideal for the biological stage of treating wastewater. The technology is suited to low-medium/ high strength wastewater from breweries, wineries, commercial kitchens, soft drink and confectionery producers, dairies, bakeries and canneries, as well as fruit, vegetable and meat processors.
A brewery process presents one of the biggest challenges possible to a microbiological control program. Microorganisms are responsible for both the production and the degradation of the product. Microbial control is also critical for production and filling equipment. A brewing environment offers various applications where chlorine dioxide may be employed, like as terminal sanitizing rinse in the CIP systems or sanitizer for pasteurizers or filler head assemblies.
The brewing process generally generates unique, high-strength waste water as a by-product. The waste water typically has a high concentration of Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) form the carbohydrates and protein used in brewing beer. Brewery waste water usually has a temperature of > 25 °C.
