The Scottish distilling sector is a large energy user currently working to reduce its high dependency on fossil fuels and enable a transition to a low carbon future. The UN Charter, COP21 Agreement, the Scottish Government Energy Policy and Scotch Whisky Association’s Environmental Strategy all call for an 80% reduction in carbon emissions from primary energy use by 2050.
Pale Blue Dot Energy has developed GreenStills, a patent pending technology to reduce energy use in distillation by more than a third. The GreenStills technology contributes to the low carbon solution by enabling a step change in the efficiency of the distillation process. At the same time it enables a move away from steam and effective integration and storage of a range of renewable energy for heating thus creating a triple benefit of reduced energy usage/cost, improved security of energy supply and decarbonisation through the use of renewables. Aspects of the technology are applicable beyond the distilling sector.
Pale Blue Dot Energy would like to meet with:
- Large energy users seeking a breakthrough in reducing the impact of carbon and cost on their operation.
- Suppliers with heat transfer and process engineering expertise.
- Suppliers with experience of developing bespoke retrofit process control systems.
- Suppliers of thermal storage solutions.
- Suppliers of demand side management.
