Thermal recycling of spent grain as environmentally friendly energy source

Christian Pecher, Flottweg AG

Paper based on a lecture given at the ARFB study day,
Meurice, Brussels, October 12th 2007

ABSTRACT As a result of various waste disposal regulations coming into force, dumping or open ground tipping of organic waste with total organic carbon content (TOC) exceeding 5% will be prohibited. Therefore, industry has now to look for ways in which waste substances from breweries can be used efficiently. The present paper investigates the possibility of using the spent grain as source for thermal energy. Benefits of spent grain combustion are discussed, presenting cost savings, taking into account byproducts like ash used as fertilizer additive and biogas production from presswater. Side-effects on beer quality are also considered.
