MATERIAL FLOW ANALYSIS FOR PRODUCTION LINE AND WASTEWATER TREATMENT IN BREWERY INDUSTRY, AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CLEANER PRODUCTION SOLUTIONS

Tran Thanh Huyen

Abstract


The novelty of this study is to apply Material Flow Analyses (MFAs) for both production line and wastewater treatment processes in a modern-technology beer company with an aim to assess cleaner production opportunities and potentials of the company through different scenarios for each cleaner production measure. As aspect of production line, two energy saving measures were proposed: (1) to reuse water-for-cooling for bottle and keg washing, and  (2) to reuse thermal heat produced during rapid cooling to supply heat for the malt pasting process. The 2nd measure could save 11% of heat needed for malt pasting and 5.5% of steam from boiler that heats keg washing water was reduced in the 1nd solution compared to the case of no heat reuse in loop. Within the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), the study proposed using biogas to generate energy through CHP (combine heat and power) system, of which electrical power is utilized for the WWTP operation and heat is used to maintain the temperature of sludge anaerobic digester (SAD) through a heat exchanger (HE). The results showed that the energy generated from biogas could compensate 16% of the total energy consumption of the WWTP with 43% (corresponding to 1,735 kWh) of electrical energy saving; 11% of heat saving to maintain SAD system
