This volume of proceedings contains papers presented at the first international seminar on the rational and environment-conscious use of energy in the brewery industry. Session 1 was on energy supply and the possibility of saving energy by using diesel generators to provide combined heat, power and refrigeration. Session 2 was on modern wort-boiling systems. The waste heat generated in boiling can, for example, be fed back to pre-heat the wort. Session 3 contained reports on reduction of smoke emission and on condensation and heat-treatment of brewhouse vapours. The main point of interest, as regards emissions, was the exploitation of waste products and waste heat by fish farming in the warm outflow, by anaerobic treatment of the outflow and by obtaining biogas from brewery waste. Over 20% of breweries' energy needs could be met by means of extraction from residues.
