One important study found that nearly 50 percent of existing coal-fired power plants have sufficient reclaimed water available within a 10-mile radius, and 75 percent have sufficient reclaimed water available within a 25-mile radius. DOE also concludes that we can significantly reduce the water dependency of power plants by switching to dry and wet-dry hybrid cooling technologies and by using alternative water sources instead of freshwater. This is powerful evidence of the enormous potential for energy companies and water utilities to work together to reduce the environmental impacts from – and the water-related vulnerabilities to – power plants.

In short, it’s time to stop wasting our wastewater and instead use it to protect our nation’s energy supply.”

Getting In The Spirit: Whisky Waste Being Turned To Energy

15-07-13(7)picCommercial operations have started at an 8.23MW whisky-to-energy facility that will have the ability to provide heat and power to around 9,000 homes.

The company running the facility, Helius Energy, have also revealed ambitious plans to develop a £300m, 10MW biomass plant at Avonmouth within the next few years.

The £60.5m biomass site, which is located in Speyside, Scotland, has already completed a successful trial period and was officially opened by Prince Charles in April. Of Scotland’s 100 whisky distilleries 50 are based in, or very close to, the location of the plant.
