어떤 산업 분야든 이제 환경, 규제, 사회, 경제, 운영 등 다양한 측면에서 해결해야 할 과제가 늘어났다는 점에 있어서 예외가 될 수 없습니다. 단순한 서비스 솔루션 차원을 넘어 실질적인 혁신 역량을 보유한 창의적인 파트너를 찾는 움직임이 생겨나게 된 것 또한 마찬가지 선상에서 생각할 수 있습니다. 베올리아가 존재감이 두드러지는 이유가 바로 여기에 있습니다.

A whisky that is more environmentally friendly

Diageo was created in 1997 through a merger between Guinness and Grand Metropolitan and is now the world's leading name in beer, wine and spirits. The company has implemented a strategy to reduce energy bills and water consumption at its main site in Scotland.



The Roseisle distillery in the Moray Firth is working to meet international growth in demand for whisky. The site produces premium malts for a variety of brands including J&B and Buchanan’s, with a total output of some 12.6 million liters of spirit a year.

Key challenge: The site’s high energy demand and insufficient recovery of water from whisky distillation after use.



To rise to this challenge, Dalkia and Veolia Water developed a unique, innovative solution that includes:

  • producing fuel from draff (spent grain)
  • producing biogas from pot ale (fermented wort)
  • producing steam from fossil fuels, biomass and biogas
  • recycling water

Diageo eventually aims to not only lower energy bills but also to recover and reuse water at the nearby Diageo Maltings site while minimizing any impact on the local aquifer.



320,000 m³ of water treated and reused at the site

22,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions prevented
