World Distilled Spirits Conference 2017 on-site Digestion Specialist Clearfleau is building more distillery plants in 2017/18.
As a leading provider of bio-energy solutions for the distillery sector, Clearfleau is participating in the World Distilled Spirts Conference (WDSC) held in Glasgow at the end of May. With two on-site bio-energy plants on Diageo distillery sites, the company is working on several new distillery projects, including a new craft distillery. Generating on-site bio-energy is a very efficient use of resources for energy intensive processes like distillation.
The distillery sector is being encouraged by stakeholders and regulators to curb its carbon emissions. The development of a more circular economy and the deployment of low carbon solutions should be at the forefront of the discussions at WDSC. Access to on-site bio-energy is fundamental to emissions reduction and cleaner manufacturing. The distillery sector in Scotland is leading the way in looking at bio-energy options for the future.
Clearfleau, a leading British supplier of on-site bio-energy solutions for distillery sites, uses innovative anaerobic digestion technology that creates value from co-products by converting them into clean energy. This approach maximises energy output from liquid residues and replaces fossil fuels with clean energy, to reduce costs.
At WDSC, Clearfleau will be showcasing current projects in the distillery sector. Clearfleau hopes the success of this best practice model will facilitate the transition to better resource use on distillery sites, as part of the move to a more circular economy.
Clearfleau recently secured recognition for its innovative bio-digestion plant in Cumbria, with the 2016 Business Green Technology Award for the Circular Economy as well as in the Resource Management category at the 2017 Edie Sustainability Leaders Awards. The project shows how a more circular resource use on industrial sites can also reduce costs.
