Good news for the scotch drinkers in the audience: you will soon be able to enjoy your single malt guilt free.Good news for the scotch drinkers in the audience: you will soon be able to enjoy your single malt guilt free. A group of scotch distillers in (where else) Scotland have joined together to build a biomass power plant that will produce enough energy to power 9,000 homes. It will be powered with by-products of the scotch distilling process, like solid grain products and pot ale, as well as wood chips. The power will either be used to support distilleries in the area, the neighbouring communities, or it may even be pumped right into the National Grid. There are also plans to turn leftover pot ale into organic fertilizers for local farmers. So why not support the scotch distillers this weekend, and enjoy a tipple.
