In a thermochemical conversion plant (TCR®), brewery spent grains of Schneider Weisse is converted into biochar, gas and oil for electricity, heat and cooling production in a directly coupled CHP plant. The efficient energetic integration of the conversion plant in the location of the brewery will examined and, in the context of commercial marketing, the produced biochar will tested with regard to the possibility of charcoal application.
The aim of the demonstration project is the efficient and economic use of brewery spent grains both in energetic as well as material terms, on the one hand to increase the efficiency of the brewery and on the other hand, to reduce the uncertainties in the recovery of brewery spent grains.
