By 2028, Statista projects the worldwide beer market to reach 130.2bn L (CAGR 2023-2028) at an annual growth rate of 3.67%. As a result, breweries may have plenty of growth opportunities, but remaining competitive means being efficient in production and embracing modern technology.


Simultaneously, there has been ongoing innovation to create new production equipment. While research and development has traditionally aimed to improve product quality and minimize operational costs, consumer and regulatory pressure is driving brewers to prioritize sustainability. According to the Global Sustainability Study 2021, 85% of consumers have become "greener" when considering a purchase.

Different policies and practices are in place globally to control industrial emissions, from the use of low-waste technology and reduction in hazardous substances to the consumption and nature of raw materials used in the process like water. These policies are becoming more commonplace and breweries will be expected to meet these requirements in efficiency and sustainability if they haven't already.


With traditional ways of brewing not being as effective as they once were and the need for more sustainable solutions a crucial factor, how can modern technologies offer brewers both efficient, cost-effective and sustainable practices?

How modern technology provide production improvements:



  • More efficient
  • Higher production per man hour
  • Minimal downtime


  • Lower OPEX
  • Lower product losses


  • Highest quality filtrate
  • Product quality improvements
  • Flavor and physical stability

Health, Safety & Sustainability

  • Lower wastewater impact
  • No powder handling and disposal (waste reduction)
  • Lower water and energy consumption
  • Environmental Health and Safety (EHS)
