One of our members, Beam Suntory, has worked on a feasibility study into the use of zero-emission hydrogen at its Ardmore® distillery in Scotland.
The research shows how an ultra-efficient, high-pressure electrolyzer could be used to produce and store hydrogen on site, powered only by wastewater and local renewable energy. The hydrogen can then be looped back into the heat or power system to minimize – and ultimately eliminate – the need for fossil fuels.
