Focus on Water and Energy Management
Energy and resource efficiency are also pivotal topics in the beverage and liquid food industry, both on the manufacturer and supplier sides.
Numerous brewery and soft drink companies have formulated ambitious goals with regard to their water footprints: Here the keyword is sustainability. What was not possible is the past is possible today: high potentials in saving.
However, machine manufacturers are increasingly making the economic use of energy and resources a selling point, both in their own companies and above all with customers. Company earnings of course play an essential role, but also the image that the company projects to the outside. The industry is dealing with topics such as reduced water consumption, use of process heat, water recycling, water quality and the use of more efficient components. Achieving increasingly more output with fewer resources is a goal of the future.

Statements by Experts
Professor Dr. Stefan Schildbach from the University of Fulda, Dept. of Food Technology: “Sustainability most certainly also affects the subject of water processing. Savings that only a few years ago were considered too small and not cost-effective to implement, are now becoming ever more interesting. I am thinking here, for example, of the processing of water from filter backwash and of further increasing the yield in reverse osmosis plants. Also, intelligent control and monitoring strategies will start to become more important.”
Dr. Peter Stadler, Environmental & Water Resources Director, Coca-Cola GmbH: “Large corporations can make a big difference. When Coca-Cola promotes the goal of making packaging plastic from renewable natural resources in the future, then that has a lot of weight.”
Peter Peschmann, Division Head of Production and Industrial Engineering, Brauerei C. & A. Veltins GmbH & Co. KG: “Malting barley is increasingly in competition with energy crops. Consequently, we have to be active now if we want to have our desired quality tomorrow.”
Volker Kronseder, CEO of Krones AG: “Only 50% of filled PET bottles worldwide are collected, and new bottles are only produced from 3% of them.”
“Ecology and economy together create a win-win situation. When social responsibility is added to that, sustainability is a triple-win situation.”
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Niemeyer, CEO of KHS GmbH: “Every gram of less PET, which we need for our bottles, represents extraordinary resource savings calculated globally.”
