Here at the Speyburn Distillery we are 100% committed to preserving the environment, and to working with other whisky distilleries to reduce CO2 emissions. As part of that commitment we are extremely proud to be involved in a project to build a brand new £60.5 million bio-mass power plant here in Rothes. The first of its kind in the world, it will use by-products from the Speyburn distillery and other local distilleries to generate electricity, produce animal feed and drastically cut carbon emissions. It will also generate 7.2MW of electricity – enough to power 9,000 homes – most of which will be for export to the national grid. It is estimated that the plant will save 46,642 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
