Each year, around 140 million tonnes of raw milk is produced across Europe which requires an average energy input of 18 400 GWh. To put that into perspective, that’s enough to power Lithuania’s 1.35 million households for a year.
Processes like pasteurising and processing raw milk into cheese, yoghurt, equipment sterilisation and lighting or the transport of dairy products, require different degrees of heating and cooling. Consequently, they have a high energy demand. SUSMILK, an EU-funded project , has been launched to make an impact on the production side, looking to save energy in the dairy industry by testing energy efficient and renewable technologies in different dairies across Europe.
Know the technological solutions that SUSMILK is developing and testing in different dairies across Europe, reading the article published by Horizon magazine.
