Celtic Renewables’ biobutanol wins “Best Innovation” at the Scottish Green Energy Awards

| December 17, 2012

In Scotland, Celtic Renewables received the “Best Innovation” award at the Scottish Green Energy Awards for their technology which converts two key by-products of whisky production, ‘pot ale’ and ‘draff’, into biobutanol. In CE’s process, draff and pot ale are mixed and then fermented to produce a  “broth”. The broth is then distilled to produce Butanol, Acetone and Ethanol,  and the remainder is separated into solid material, which can be dried to  produce a high-grade animal feed; and an effluent.

The Scottish Green Energy Award follows from an award as “innovator of the year” for company founder Martin Tangney from the Insitute of Chemical Engineering.
