Due to rising fuel costs and a need for reduction of CO2 emissions renewable energy sources have gained growing importance in industrial energy concept planning. Especially in food industry, a significant percentage of raw materials used leaves the process as biological waste. In this study a small scale brewery situated in Northeast England was audited. Based on the data gained, the feasibility of fuel production using the bio waste from production for bio gas generation was modelled for the planned extended capacity of production. Several scenarios for conversion were simulated, their gas demand determined, performance compared and economic viability calculated.
