Goess Heineken green brewery

Goess Heineken green brewery

First major carbon neutral brewery

The brewery has different energy sources: biogas generated by the spent grain fermentation and the anaerobic waste water treatment plant which is used directly for steam production and to produce heat and electricity in a CHP facility. In a nearby sawmill wood is burned in a CHP ORC plant and the heat as warm water is used in the brewery, solar thermal energy providing for up to 5% of the brewery’s energy demand. A storage of 200 m3 is also included to store hot water from the solar thermal plant. The whole energy usage was optimized by a excess heat recovery concept.
