Bruichladdich Distillery hydrogen project given the green light

Protium Green Solutions has received more than £70,000 to help incorporate hydrogen combustion technology into Bruichladdich Distillery, on the Rhinns of the isle of Islay in Scotland.

Part of the BEIS Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP), the project is thought to be the next step in assessing the application of alternative fuels at the island-based Bruichladdich.

Due to the remote location of many distilleries across Scotland, hydrogen is a critical step forward in enabling producers to work towards net zero. Hydrogen further enables operations to benefit from on‐site power sources that are otherwise hindered by pre‐existing grid limitations.

Taking advantage of the opportunity, is the feasibility project named HyLaddie, which will explore the deployment of an on‐site Deuterium Dynamic Combustion Chamber (DCC™) as a viable mechanism to meet Bruichladdich’s heating requirements.
