Project Name: SolarBrew Göss

Changes in the production and energy supply:
- Process optimisation
- Heat recovery
- Energy efficiency
- Steam to hot water
- RES: Solar Thermal
The mashing process has been changed to a low-temperature-process by integrating additional heat exchanger plates. Hot water is now used instead of steam, which allows better renewable energy integration. A 1,470 m² solar thermal collector field provides hot water for the mashing process.
A vapour condenser recovers the waste steam, which occurs during the start-up of the wort boiling process. The produced hot water is also integrated into the hot water distribution network of the brewery.
