Site Visit: Cameronbridge Distillery Bio-Energy Facility

26 June 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Veolia are committed to helping their customers gain value by going circular. Working with Diageo’s Cameronbridge Distillery – the largest grain distillery in Europe – Veolia have developed new technology to recover energy from the by-products of whisky production. The distillery is now one of the most environmentally sustainable in the world.


Cameronbridge is the first distillery in the world to combine biomass combustion, anaerobic digestion and water recovery. The bio-energy facility, delivered and operated by Veolia generates up to 30MW of energy, meeting 95% of the site’s energy needs and saving enough carbon to heat 10,000 homes.


The advanced water recovery technology inside the bio-energy facility recovers up to 30% of the water used in the distilling process and significantly improves the quality of the water it discharges, measured in biochemical oxygen demand (BOD). This plant will reduce Diageo’s total volume of waste water discharged (as measured by BOD) by 55%.


PPE is mandatory. Visitors must bring their own PPE (hard hat, hi-viz vest/jacket, safety boots (not rigger), gloves and safety glasses.
