Water & Water Management

Cleaning & Disinfection of Lines: Safe production, verifiable cleaning processes and standardised procedures are part of the daily routine in the production line. How can plant cleaning become even more effective - an important question for all beverage and liquid food manufacturers worldwide.

Water Saving & Reuse: Water is the key ingredient for all beverages. This is why it is even more important to use water sparingly as product and process water. Current solutions show where and how water can be saved.

Sustainable Production & Sustainable Packaging

Circular Beverage Packaging: This starts with quality issues for the use of recycled PET, extends to questions about how labels can meet the requirements of recycling systems, to topics around the potential of paper-based packaging or solutions for bottle-to-bottle recycling.

Energy Efficiency: Energy efficiency is an important factor for sustainable production in numerous process steps. Looking at individual components is just as important as the question of energy-efficient process steps.

Supply Chain: The sustainability of the supply chain - from raw materials to packaging materials – is an important issue in determining emissions and in the question of environmental sustainability.

Sustainable Filling & Packaging Lines: What is the best way to achieve hygienic and sustainable filling and packaging? The use of sterilisation media and consumption values are just two keywords when it comes to raising beverage filling to a high level of sustainability.

Sustainability in Breweries: There are numerous options for the use of sustainable technologies in beer production. The examples of the presentations range from modernisation measures in the malt house to energy savings in beer cooling in gastronomy.
