CO2 emissions

An Emission-Free Future. Costs? Strategies?

As part of the Climate Protection Program 2030, the previous German government established CO2 pricing for fossil fuels. This pricing has applied since 2021 and will increase each year at a fixed rate until 2025. What costs can breweries and malt houses expect as a result? Authors Matthias Kern and Georg Schu of the Ingenieurbüro für Energie- und Umwelttechnik (Engineering Office for Energy and Environmental Technology) illustrate strategies for reducing costs.

Brewery-based Soda Production

It’s already been seven years since the Paulaner Brewery left its old brewing premises in Nockherberg and moved to Langwied in Munich, yet people still refer to it as the “new” brewery. However, some of the facilities and systems were also relocated from Nockherberg and incorporated into the new premises, such as the mixing system for mixed beer beverages and non-alcoholic beverages. These segments in particular are growth areas in the beer market, and the popularity of Paulaner’s products meant that capacity needed to be seriously ramped up. Ole Kohls, Marketing Manager at corosys beverage technology, explains how this was achieved with the installation of a new mixing system.

Prof. Jean Titze, Luisa Schubotz, Jannis Böhlke and Johannes Jeske from the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences in Köthen say this is a good reason to explore the characteristics of this drink and its special ingredient, caramel sugar.

The sustainability puzzle at the Munich Hofbräuhaus

Do good and tell people about it. There is still a lot of good to be done in the areas of environmental protection and sustainable production. When it comes to sustainable beer production, the Staatliches Hofbräuhaus in Munich is one of the trailblazers. And yet we hardly ever hear about the many measures being taken there. Why? Because sustainable business is simply common sense according to Dr Michael Möller, technical director, and Sebastian Utz, environmental officer at Hofbräuhaus München.

Keeping an eye on bottling systems with the smartwatch

It is practically impossible to operate bottling plants efficiently without the appropriate IT systems. Until now, smartwatches have played almost no role in this. Christian Diederich, founder of SubLine Solutions, highlights their immense potential in beverage production.
