Glenfiddich has started a great initiative to save the world from being just a dumping ground of various wastes. Popular Scotch whisky brand Glenfiddich has come with an idea to use its whiskey waste as biogas, Yes! Isn't this an incredible move to save the earth and people from sky-touching prices of diesel?
The whiskey brand will make biogas from its whisky waste to run its delivery vehicles. Now, in this idea, what’s more interesting is the company's claims. The company says this will help it reduce vehicle pollution, reducing CO2 emission by as much as 95% and other fossil fuels, and reduces other harmful particulates and greenhouse gas emissions by up to 99%. Glenfiddich has already started working on this move, development to convert its delivery trucks to run on this biogas fuel has been begun. The initiative is part of a "closed-loop" sustainability project. The fuel stations have been set up at the company’s Dufftown distillery in north-eastern Scotland. The biogas fuel made from whisky waste is being used to run at least three of its delivery trucks to transport products across four of its sites in central and western Scotland. Glenfiddich said that each truck will be able to displace up to 250 tonnes of CO2 every year.
The technology has been developed by its parent company William Grant & Sons. To convert its production waste and residues into an Ultra-Low Carbon Fuel gas was initiated by the parent company. Stuart Watts, distillery director at family-owned William Grant & Sons, said, "The thought process behind this was 'what can we do that's better for us all?"
