The implementation of already existing (energy) efficient technologies is a possible way to achieve a resource efficient production. The challenge is that new technologies have to be developed and existing ones have to be optimized for the application within the dairy industry. The largest share of the total water and energy consumption of the complete post-harvest milk product chain lies within the dairies. Thus SUSMILK focuses on this part of the post-harvest chain.

With SUSMILK the dairy industry in Europe can save up to 50 % of total energy and 30 % of total water consumption, achieving also a 100 % substitution of fossil energy with renewable energy.


GDN is a open innovation tool for experts and professionals interested in sustainable development and resource efficient processing technologies in the dairy sector.
