Whisky waste meets a profitable end…

Apologies for the lack of posts recently!  Lots going on with moving house, working on my copywriting business, and working towards my parallel career goal of becoming a mountain leader!  Anyway, I thought it was worth finding time to highlight the successful completion of the biomass plant in Rothes, which uses the waste products of whisky distilling, a major industry in the area, to generate heat and power.  This is a fantastic example of how waste can be put to good use, and in my opinion is by far and away one of the most worthy CHP plants to receive ROC’s:   The plant is not burning virgin timber (under normal circumstances), putting up timber and food prices, but is using an erstwhile waste product to generate energy and animal feed!  Read more here – http://www.biomassmagazine.com/articles/8896/helius-corde-chp-plant-opens-in-scotland-earns-ro-accreditation
