Whisky Power

The Guardian (UK)

Scotland toasts new whisky-powered bioenergy plant

Up to 9,000 homes to be powered with energy produced by burning waste matter from the whisky-making process

Waste products from around 16 of the area's 50 distilleries will be used at the site, including well-known brands such as Glenlivet, Chivas Regal, Macallan, and Famous Grouse.

Good brands! Rumor has it* that real estate values downwind from the plant have tripled. The thrifty Scots will save a lot of money formerly spent in bars merely by relaxing in lawn chairs on the roof. No more the image of the drunken Scotsman crawling home. They'll just fall down the stairs.

I hope they never figure out how to make economical sustainable power from dog shit...

*I know because I started it.
