A Scottish whisky distillery has installed a £12 million bio-energy plant built on-site to supply it with green energy.
The facility, owned by Alcoholic drinks company Diageo, converts 1,000 cubic metres of co-products into 1MWh of heat a day.
Initial results indicate the Glendullan bio-energy facility is generating two million cubic metres of biogas per year. That’s around 8,000MWh of thermal energy, the company claims.
Scottish Office Minister said: “The commitment to powering distilleries like Glendullan with sustainable energy, recycled from the co-products of the whisky-making process is exactly the right thing to do.
“Good for the planet, good for the whisky industry and good for the Scottish economy.”
