Glenfiddich utilizes whisky as an eco-friendly fuel to power trucks.
The Scottish distillery Glenfiddich has introduced a fleet of specially modified trucks called "fuelled by Glenfiddich", that operate on green biogas created from its own whiskey waste. Compared with diesel and other fossil fuels, the revolutionary closed-loop technology will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 99%, and each truck can release up to 250 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year.
The technology is developed in-house and is part of a larger sustainability strategy that the company is currently implementing. Glenfiddich produces ultra-low carbon gas by converting manufacturing waste and distillation leftovers. A unique gas station is also created at the winery in Dufftown, Scotland. (Via)
