Anaerobic wastewater treatment
In issue 12-13 / 2021, the specialist journal BRAUWELT published our specialist article “Energy from wastewater” with regard to the FlexBio process.
Manages the vast majority of breweries in Germany (over 1500)
their wastewater is discharged into municipal sewage treatment plants as “indirect dischargers”; only 8.5 percent of all operations discharge directly. The Waste Water Ordinance prescribes limit values for breweries discharging directly into water. Compliance with these is of great relevance for the environment and sewage treatment plant operators. However, the conventional treatment of wastewater has high operating costs
and CO2 emissions. Influenced by ecological developments and the current trend towards more sustainability, more and more breweries are placing particular emphasis on innovative, environmentally friendly brewery technology. So many companies are looking for one
Solution for modernizing and increasing the efficiency of your own processes. This includes, on the one hand, optimizing the operating costs for wastewater treatment and disposal and, on the other hand, improving the CO2 balance.
The FlexBio process enables breweries to handle wastewater in a sustainable manner and to use the energy contained in the wastewater. Both the pretreatment to avoid heavy pollution charges and the full clarification for direct discharge are implemented with the process. The new generation of anaerobic wastewater treatment comes in a compact and modular design and is primarily for small and medium-sized companies
an economical solution.
In summary, wastewater falls in different ways in a brewery
Process steps. The Flexbio wastewater technology enables
Energy generation from wastewater and a significant reduction in the cost of wastewater disposal.
