Brewing and beverage production

Innovative and sustainable solution

The beverage industries produce wastewater which is characterized by high COD and nitrogen loads. In conventional wastewater treatment plants, these entered loads result in high amounts of sewage sludge and high energy requirements.

Your advantages at a glance

  • Compact and modular
  • Expandable as needed
  • Easy integration during operation (plug & play principle)
  • Elimination of heavy pollution fees
  • Low maintenance
  • Chemicals savings
  • Low operating costs
  • Sustainable biogas production
  • Improve theCO2 balance of your business

We have the perfect solution for you.

The registered fats and COD loads are converted into energy-rich biogas with the help of the unique FlexBio wastewater treatment. This significantly reduces waste streams and you do not have to costly dispose of the flotafat. Furthermore, you can produce up to 20% of the total energy requirements of your company from the wastewater.

We provide you with solutions for direct and indirect discharge into the neighboring wastewater treatment plant. In addition, there are no costs for heavy pollution charges or other surcharges on the wastewater levy.

Technology in practice

The FlexBio wastewater technology effectively and inexpensively cleans the wastewater produced by beverage producers. Regardless of whether you produce / process juices or beer, wastewater treatment does its job at the highest level. The FlexBio systems are offered as compact and modular container solutions or in a classic container design. The decisive advantage of FlexBio technology is that our systems are also economical for smaller companies.

The raw sewage is first passed through a separator / drum screen in order to separate impurities and coarse materials. The wastewater is then temporarily stored in a storage tank and homogenized. The wastewater then goes to the main purification stage of the plant: the high-performance fermenter. Here, the fats and organic compounds entered are converted into biogas using the biological process of methanogenesis. At this stage, over 90% of the loads are reduced. This does not result in any material flows that have to be disposed of. The wastewater that has been pre-treated in this way is treated aerobically in the second treatment stage. In this stage, the remaining impurities are removed from the wastewater.

The biogas produced can be used for energy directly in a CHP or a gas boiler and thus provided as sustainable energy for your company. If necessary, the biogas can also be used to produce compressed air or cold.

The system is designed for changing loads. Even strong shock loads are buffered and therefore have no influence on the discharge values. The process values can be set individually and permanently guaranteed by the intelligent process management. Regardless of whether you introduce indirectly and only have to comply with a COD limit value or whether you, as a direct discharger, have to comply with COD, BOD5, total nitrogen, nitrate, nitrite, ammonium, phosphates etc., the FlexBio portfolio always offers the right solution.
