lem Energy's CHP technology is helping North British Distillery to generate a significant amount of the site’s electricity consumption with a new AD system. Established in 1885, North British Distillery is one of the largest Scotch Grain Whisky producers in Scotland, using up to 150,000 tonnes of cereal per year, with a capacity to produce approximately 10 bottles of whisky per second. Ylem Energy's 500kWe CHP system is capable of generating 4000 MWh of electricity from post-distillation liquor and evaporator condensate. This dramatically reduces the distillery’s reliance on natural gas and electricity from the National Grid.
The C02 displaced from grid generated electricity from the 500kWe biogas generator will reduce carbon emissions by more than 2,100 tonnes per year.
