Focus on long-term sustainability and a greener future

The global brewery industry is striving to ‘go green,’ and our aim is to support your long-term sustainability, as well as your future economic success. Talk to us any time to find out more about how GEA technologies could help to improve your environmental footprint, by reducing resource and energy use, recycling heat and water where possible, and cutting waste and emissions. We realise that one size doesn’t fit all, our experts and project managers tailor GEA solutions that will take into account your local environmental, resource and transport infrastructure, and the economic and ecological constraints under which you operate.

Filling it your way; smart solutions for bottles and cans

You want to know that your final products will retain top quality right into the bottle or can, so we have developed a range of fillers as a hygienic, flexible platform that saves on downtime and delays. Available in different sizes, the space-saving filler models are true multitaskers, and for some applications can fully automate every stage of rinsing, filling, and capping/sealing glass bottles and cans. Quick-change features on the units, and an easy-to-use, programmable user-interface mean it is simple and fast to switch between container sizes and formats, so you don’t have to waste time reconfiguring complicated equipment. We can tailor a system that will match just about any operating requirement and budget.

Taking care of the smallest details

The art of brewing is dependent upon complex, interconnected processes, each of which can impact on final brew properties and quality. This means you don’t want to leave anything to chance. Here at GEA we look at your biggest and smallest pain points to help us tailor components and equipment that can address every detail, for each stage in the brewing process, from the mill to the valve manifold of the bright beer tanks.

Craft, specialty and dealcoholized beer

We want to help turn your imagination into that ‘cheers everyone’ reality! The creativity of small-scale craft and niche specialty breweries has inspired us to develop solutions that you can use for exciting new process concepts and recipes, from hop-infused brews and fruit flavored blends, to dealcoholized craft beers.
