£149k for bid to use hydrogen from renewables to produce gin

Edinburgh Napier will play a key role in an investigation into the feasibility of hydrogen as a fuel to decarbonise the distilling process. The HySpirits project has been awarded £148,600 by the Department of Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to conduct the study at The Orkney Distillery. The project will investigate the development of a thermal fluid heater system to operate with hydrogen as the combustion fuel within the distilling process. This system will remove the need to use fossil fuels such as kerosene and liquid petroleum gas. HySpirits brings together…
