UK distilleries go green with the help of hydrogen

To push forward its green industrial revolution, the UK Government has announced a £10m fund to help distilleries go green by switching to low carbon fuels such as hydrogen.

Producers in one of the UK’s most iconic industries will be playing their part in reducing carbon emissions, with 17 distilleries today receiving the first phase of £10m as part of the movement.

11 distilleries across Scotland and a further six in England will be able to kick-start green innovations due to the government backing, helping to harness energy sources such as low-carbon hydrogen, biomass and repurposed waste to power operations.

The successful distilleries will receive between £44,000 and £75,000 in the first phase of funding, helping them boost decarbonisation research and development, with schemes including the use of hydrogen and biofuel boilers and geothermal energy in production processes.
