Building a sustainable business in Scotland

Biofuel from whisky by-products

Scotland’s national spirit is now powering cars, thanks to groundbreaking research from Celtic Renewables.

The company – a spinout from the Biofuel Research Centre at Edinburgh Napier University, founded by Professor Martin Tagney OBE (pictured) – developed a biofuel from whisky residues.

The whisky industry produces over 1,600 million litres of whisky by-products a year that can be converted to fuel – Celtic Renewables’ innovation could help reduce our energy consumption.
