NX Filtration supplies beer filtration membranes to Carlsberg Fredericia in Denmark
NX Filtration, the global provider of breakthrough filtration technology, supplied its membranes to Carlsberg’s Fredericia brewery in Denmark, one of the largest breweries in Europe, that has a strong focus on process optimization and sustainability. NX Filtration’s microfiltration membranes are being used to further improve performance and sustainability of Carlsberg’s flagship brewery.

NX Filtration is amongst the few suppliers of hollow fiber microfiltration membranes to the beer industry globally. Microfiltration offers a superior alternative for traditional filtration method (diatomaceous earth) because of its higher and more constant quality, lower energy use, the possibility of continuous operation and the avoidance of environmental impact.

For Carlsberg’s Fredericia brewery, NX Filtration supplied its microfiltration modules to further optimize the beer filtration process in the brewery. NX Filtration’s membrane modules offer the highest quality and unique characteristics in terms of robustness, energy and chemical consumption, costs, and operability and handling.

Peter Rasmussen, Production Manager at Carlsberg, comments:

“The beer filtration membranes of NX Filtration increased our filtration uptime by more than 50%, and also significantly reduced the consumption of energy, chemicals and water. This not only reduces costs but is also contributing to our goal to have zero water waste by 2030.”

Gerard Ruiter, Sales Manager Food & Beverage at NX Filtration, comments:

“We are proud to have supplied our high quality microfiltration membrane modules to Carlsberg and support them in their journey towards further optimization and sustainability of their brewing process. With our product portfolio, that also includes direct nanofiltration membranes, NX Filtration also serves the brewing industry in broader applications such as de-alcoholization, water re-use and CIP recovery.”

For this project, NX Filtration partnered with NS Filtration, a Danish specialist with decades of experience in the brewing industry, that installed the modules at Carlsberg’s Fredericia brewery and will provide local operational service and support.
