Diageo promises fossil-fuel-free whiskey production with new carbon-neutral distillery

Employing electrode boilers, the site will utilise a mix of renewable electricity sources to power a 72,000 square-foot distillery, dry house and warehousing facilities

Beverages giant Diageo has announced its new whiskey distillery in Kentucky, one of the largest facilities in North America, will be carbon-neutral.

Employing electrode boilers, the site will utilise a mix of renewable electricity sources to power a 72,000 square-foot distillery, dry house, and warehousing facilities.

The firm also plans to incorporate other green features in the factory, which are expected to help avoid annual carbon dioxide emissions by more than 117,000 metric tonnes, the equivalent to taking more than 25,000 cars off the road.
