Tangential Flow Filtration Technology Increases Yield And Reduces Waste Streams

80% of the extract found in the excess yeast that accumulates at the bottom of tanks following fermentation and maturation can now be recovered rather than discarded. By reintroducing the beer into the brewing process at a ratio of up to 5%, its quality remains unaffected while yield increases and the total volume necessary for production decreases. This not only amounts to a lower CO2 footprint, but it reduces water usage and production costs. Moreover, the minimized waste stream diminishes disposal costs and ensures a lower level of BODs and CODs are released into the environment.

A brewery with a production capacity of 4,000,000 hl annually and 500 hl of surplus yeast accumulating daily aimed to reduce production costs. See how using a Keraflux-TFF (Tangential Flow Filtration) System for yeast management met customer needs and significantly reduced processing costs.
