500,000,000+ Beer and Soft Drinks Every Day Can’t be Wrong

This tagline is Union Engineering’s entrance to Brau Beviale in 2016. A tagline which is not just a large number but actually a conservatively estimated figure illustrating a story about a company that a substantial number of people are becoming acquainted with every day – around the globe.

It is the story about the company’s position as a forerunner when it comes to developing new and innovative CO2 technologies and being passionate about green footprint.

It is the number of beer and soft drinks daily produced including CO2 delivered from a Union Engineering plant.

A shared Passion

Lars Klitgaard Pedersen is General Sales Manager for the beverage segment at Union Engineering, and he explains; “for our customers the focus is of course on their end-product. They are looking at food-safety, on utility consumption and ROI, and it is our passion to provide them with the best solution for their specific needs. We have proven that we understand the market demand, and we keep improving and developing technologies meeting the key performance parameters of the market. Back in 2013, we introduced the ground-breaking and patented ECO2Brew®, which is not just able to purify CO2 without using water, but it is also over-performing when it comes to reduction in power consumption and increased recovery rate compared to the traditional technologies.”

The patented and successful ECO2Brew is ready in a version 2.0.

Since the first ECO2Brew® installation, Union Engineering has further improved the technology and it is now ready for the grand presentation at the exhibition.

Size Matters

Craft Brewers and smaller conventional breweries can also benefit from visiting Union Engineering during the exhibition. Lars Klitgaard and his colleagues are ready to present a compact solution, which is designed for fast installation without compromising on quality and reliability. He elaborates; “We receive still more inquiries from small breweries, the need for being self-supplying with CO2 is rising. Therefore, we have developed CO2mpactBrew™, delivered as a containerised solution with all the equipment installed inside a container, featuring a maintenance aisle and easy connection points for utilities thus ensuring fast and easy installation.

“As an added benefit, by recovering your own CO2 you eliminate emissions (odours) from your fermentation process, which might otherwise require additional precautions.”

The New Standard For Self-generating Plants

For soft drink bottlers the NOxFlash® technology has more or less become the standard; a unique unit that eliminates use of the harmful and disposal demanding potassium permanganate (PPM). The unit is as standard delivered with all self-generating CO2 plants from Union Engineering. “We have supplied over 60 plants with this technology – and this has saved the customers a lot of trouble. PPM is not only difficult to get hold of; it is subject to strict rules when disposed of.” Lars Klitgaard continues, and reveals one of the reasons why the company is holding a strong position in the segment of self-generating and extraction based CO2 plants.

Union Engineering and Climeworks are joining forces in an exciting project.

Joint Forces in the Name of Science

Besides supplying to the beverage segment, Union Engineering is also the main supplier to industrial gases companies, to desalination projects and within the biogas, natural gas treatment and petrochemical industries. The large pool of CO2 experts is also making the company a natural partner within science project. Most recently a joint project with Climeworks has become a reality.

The objective of the project is to develop a standardized, competitive, low cost, modular, standalone, and onsite plant for delivery of beverage grade CO2 to bottling companies. The CO2 stems majorly from atmospheric air and is in a first step concentrated to 99.9% by a Climeworks direct air capture (“DAC”) plant. In a second step, CO2 is purified and liquefied (“conditioning”) to achieve beverage grade CO2 purity by Union Engineering technology. The project is funded by Eurostar’s programme and is called CAPDrinks.

Curiosity as a Driver

Throughout decades, curiosity and the passion for innovation has driven the company to create new technologies, expressed through a wide range of patents and over 900 CO2 plants installed worldwide. This has resulted in a position as a world leader in CO2 technology. Learn more on union.dk and sign up for news and knowledge about CO2.

Union Engineering is at Brau Beviale in hall 6 stand 342.
