HySpirits Projects

Project: HySpirits II

Timescale: 2020-2021

Funder: Department of Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) through phase 1 of the Green Distilleries Competition

Funding: £58,781

Project overview: HySpirits II will investigate the feasibility of green hydrogen heating as a clean fuel solution for decarbonisation in the distilling sector.

The project builds on the first HySpirits project completed last year by broadening the investigation, assessing four different technology pathways to facilitate green hydrogen fuel-switching in the distilling sector. The technologies to be assessed within the project include; thermal fluid technology, steam technology, direct burn technology and dual fuel technology. Following assessment, the optimal technology pathway will be selected and used by the consortium to design a demonstration project to be considered for Phase 2 funding to prove the solution in a real-world context.

Jan 2020: Orkney Distilleries go green with Hydrogen 

Project: HySpirits I

Timescale: 2019 – 2020

Funder: Department of Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)

Funding: £148,600

Project overview: HySpirits aims to 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 (LPG), for the process.
