Reducing CO2 Consumption in Times of Scarcity

Craft Brewers Conference 2023
Location: Nashville, Tennessee
Speakers: Gabriel Dominguez

Before considering investing in a CO2 recovery plant and/or N2 generator, brewers must review their standard operating procedures (SOPs) and consumption levels in order to make sure they are not wasteful or inefficient during purging, blanketing, carbonating, or de-aerating their water. This seminar will cover:

  • CO2 usage benchmarking
  • Adjusting CO2 pressure and temperature in your favor
  • Efficient carbonation and water de-aeration
  • CO2 leaks reduction program
  • Partial replacement of CO2 by N2
  • Recovering your own CO2

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand why it's important to know how much CO2 is consumed per barrel and per individual processes Discuss the main brewing processes that require the largest volume of CO2 Learn how to partially replace CO2 with N2 without jeopardizing beer quality due to high levels of O2 Discover how becoming less wasteful is faster and cheaper than buying a CO2 recovery plant
