Austria: Greenest brewery wholly powered by biogas
The greenest brewery in Austria is in Göss and is wholly powered by biogas from production waste, such as sediment, starches and sewage.
The biogas is partly conveyed to the boilers and partly to the 450 kW cogenerator, which also produces the thermal energy that services the industrial process. The biggest challenge was in making sure that the fluctuation of the matrices does not negatively affect the system’s operation.
