Blog: Olly WehringHelp to go green in Scotland

Olly Wehring | 9 December 2009

Calling all drinks companies with production operations in Scotland (and that's quite a few of you).

If you're looking for assistance in green-ing up your facilities in the country, then read on.

A third round of the Scottish Biomass Heat Scheme (SBHS) was announced by Jim Mather, Minister for Enterprise, Energy and Tourism in the Scottish Parliament last month.

The SBHS supports small- and medium-sized businesses across Scotland to install woodfuel heating for space or process heat and hot water. “We believe the food and drink industry can experience quick financial payback from converting to woodfuel ('spend to save') while substantially reducing their carbon emissions,” a spokesperson said.

If you would like to apply for support for a biomass project, get in touch with the Regional Biomass Advice Network. Contact details for your nearest adviser can be found here.

Further information, application forms and guidance notes can be found here.

The closing date for applications is 12 February 2010.
