Low-Carbon Craft Distilleries

Orkney Distillery Was Given Funding to Develop Low-Carbon Technology

— August 30, 2019 — Social Good
The Orkney Distillery, a craft distillery based in Scotland, was recently awarded a portion of the government’s £390m fund to develop low-carbon technologies that will reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emissions released in the brewing industry.

The Orkney Distillery plans to run on hydrogen that is formed from renewable energy as opposed to liquid petroleum gas. Moreover, the project will use renewable electricity to power an electrolyzer -- a device that is able to split water into hydrogen and oxygen components. The low-carbon project is projected to reduce 86 tonnes of carbon emissions annual which is equivalent to the emissions from 18 cars or 10 homes.

Lord Duncan, the climate change minister, said: “It’s great to know we can all enjoy an environmentally friendly tipple while helping our planet as we press towards a net-zero emissions economy by 2050.” This project could revolutionize the brewing industry to become more sustainable internationally.
Trend Themes
1. Low-carbon Brewing - Opportunity for craft breweries to shift towards renewable energy and low-carbon technology.
2. Electrolyzers for Sustainable Production - Opportunity for industries to employ electrolyzers to split water into hydrogen and oxygen components for sustainable production.
3. Net-zero Emissions Economy - Opportunity for businesses to shift towards a net-zero emissions economy by investing in sustainable projects and technologies.
Industry Implications
1. Craft Distilleries - Craft distilleries can adopt low-carbon technology to reduce carbon emissions and become more environmentally sustainable.
2. Brewing Industry - The brewing industry can become more sustainable by adopting low-carbon technology and renewable energy sources.
3. Renewable Energy - The renewable energy industry can expand through the adoption of electrolyzers for the sustainable production of hydrogen.
