image of 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.

BAT Candidate no. 7 – Use of non-fossil fuel based energy at malt house via district heating

Malt houses are consuming large amount of energy in the drying process. A Nordic malt house has introduced a partly non-fossil fuel solution to reduce energy consumption and introduce consumption of non-fossil fuel. The technique is referred to as district heating and the energy is supplied by an external energy plant situated outside the malt house.
