The course focuses on the understanding of unit operations and technological equipment of malting and brewing industry with regard to the specific requirements of modern and energy-efficient production. The content is based on the kinetics of biological processes and their chemical engineering description and balancing. Understanding the relationships between processes, apparatuses and equipment necessary for their implementation is deepened by including lectures on hygienic, energy and the qualitative aspects of the production processes.
