race for severe shortage The gradual departure of emissions and thermal engines creates situations that are sometimes funny and often unexpected. found the solution in scotland From Glenfiddich Distillery renowned for reducing the emissions of its truck fleet. ie: use the residues of the processing of whiskey as fuel for their own means. A clearly achievable goal, with a view to completely reducing the environmental impact (of all Scottish distilleries) by 2040.
Three “test” vehicles are actually traveling regularly along the delivery routes of the precious liquid delivered in Scotland. the only difference is they pollute less than 90% Compared to LPG they used earlier, also saving on material disposal cost. This is because the biogas produced by the distillery and used as fuel comes from the remains of malt grains processed to obtain the whiskey. Normally, they would be partially recycled as animal feed and partly disposed of (i.e. thrown away).
In addition to reducing CO2 emissions per truck, this solution cuts fast The spread of greenhouse gases and other harmful products is usually spread through the discharge of the same vehicles. While only Glenfiddich Distillery has a well 20 trucks in serviceThe benefits on the environment (when everyone will use the same fuel) are significant. In addition, the target is to make this fuel available to competitors in the next few months.
The whole system is actually based on simple reference points located near the furnaces they supply Iveco Truck Specially modified at the engine level. Once more distributors and vehicles become available for delivery, there should be no obstacle for “whiskeygas” to become standard.
And if the fuel made by this method is not yet zero emission, it is certainly a panacea for the environment compared to petroleum products like LPG. Hope no one in Scotland tries to do this use it as a drink Knowing the love of the population for the same whiskey and all its derivatives (however edible).
