Hydrogen boiler solution set to decarbonise UK distilleries

A hydrogen boiler solution pioneered by Hydrogen Technologies is set to be implemented into a whiskey distillery in Scotland as part of government-funded programme helping distilleries get into the spirit of going green.

The Jericho Energy Ventures subsidiary today (14th April) said its patented zero-emissions, hydrogen-based dynamic combustion chamber (DCC) boiler solution was included in a UK Government feasibility study, dubbed Project HyLaddie, for renowned Bruichladdich Distillery, located on the island of Islay.

The £9m ($12m) fund is part of a scheme that will attempt to decarbonise the whiskey industry which currently relies heavily on fuel oil to meet its steam and heating demand.

HTI’s cleanH2steam DCC™ boiler aims to target this by creating heat and steam via hydrogen combustion through a closed-loop system, with zero emissions.
