Breweries 'to cut carbon emissions'

Breweries 'to cut carbon emissions'
Two biomass-fuelled combined heat and power plants will be installed in Scottish & Newcastle's breweries in Manchester and Tadcaster as part of a carbon emissions reduction strategy, it has emerged.

According to the Engineer, the biomass power plants have been designed by Wartsila Biopower Plants and are thought to be the first power plants in the world to produce heat and electricity using spent grain as a fuel source.

It is though that the brewer will earn renewable obligation certificates for its efforts to produce renewable energy.

The plants will burn spent grain - a byproduct of the brewing process - and wood chips, the publication claimed.

"The Wartsila BioPower plants will enable Scottish & Newcastle to make more efficient use of residue from its beer production, cut down on waste handling and energy costs, as well as reducing CO2," said Tauno Kuitunen, regional sales director at Wartsila Biopower Plants.

Scottish & Newcastle's brands include Fosters and Kronenbourg.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18519400-ADNFCR
