Jericho Energy Ventures (JEV) subsidiary Hydrogen Technologies has been included in a government program to decarbonize the U.K. distilling industry.

U.K. whiskey production emitted 530,000 tonnes of CO2 in 2018, with the majority of it stemming from heat generation during the distillation process, accounting for more than 80 per cent of the industry’s fuel consumption.

Hydrogen Tech lent its patented cleanH2steam Dynamic Combustion Chamber Hydrogen Boiler Technology for a successful phase one feasibility study, dubbed Project HyLaddie, for the Bruichladdich Distillery on the island of Islay in Scotland.

Hydrogen Tech’s DCC boiler creates heat and steam via hydrogen combustion through a closed-loop system with zero emissions.

Project HyLaddie is part of the U.K. Government’s Green Distilleries Competition, a £9 million program to help the U.K.’s world-famous distilleries cut emissions and support green jobs.

The grants will help distilleries decarbonize their production processes, which typically rely on fossil fuels. The program is expected to cut carbon emissions by half a million tonnes per year.

The Green Distilleries Competition is part of a £1 billion Net Zero Innovation Portfolio aiming to accelerate low-carbon technologies, systems and processes in power, buildings and industrial sectors. 

Brian Williamson, CEO of Jericho Energy Ventures, commented,

“We are thrilled that our DCC technology has been given the opportunity to demonstrate how hydrogen can be utilized to deliver a zero-emission steam solution for the world-class Bruichladdich distillery.

The food and beverage market is presently a major consumer of steam from fossil fuels and we look forward to working with our partner Protium to help the industry transition to zero-emissions with our unique hydrogen-based heat and steam solution.”

Jericho Energy Ventures is focused on advancing the low-carbon energy transition with investments in hydrogen technologies, energy storage, carbon capture and new energy systems.

Jericho Energy Ventures (JEV) is up 4.3 per cent and is currently trading at C$0.97 per share as of 12:15 pm ET.
