Case Study: Suntory Reduces Waste Of Carbon Dioxide With In-Line, Real-Time Monitoring

Recovering and re-using CO2 greatly reduces beer production costs. To ensure the quality of their recovered CO2, Suntory chose a METTLER TOLEDO system.

Reduced cost of CO2 use
CO2 is an extremely important raw material in beer production, and in the past the brewery had to spend a vast amount of money to purchase high-purity CO2 from external sources. However, a substantial amount of high-quality CO2 is generated as a by-product during the beer fermentation process. By recovering and re-using this portion of CO2, production costs are greatly reduced.
