Whisky by-product set to power CHP plant

A £60.5 million 7.2 MWe Combined heat and power (CHP) plant is set to be built in Rothes, Scotland that will produce energy from whisky distillation by-products.

Residue known as 'draff' will be collected from local Speyside distillers to fuel the plant and the heat generated will be used in processes producing animal feed and being used to evaporate pot ale residue to make an edible syrup.

Incorporating an energy production element into this existing animal feed production process is expected to save around 46,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.

The UK CHP Development Tool is the latest version of the map, originally developed as a tool aimed at assisting power station developers consider the opportunities for supplying heat and development of combined heat and power (CHP) as required under planning policy. However, it can also be used by both small and large organisations to help identify the locations where the supply of CHP heat would have the greatest potential, and therefore the largest positive environmental impact.
