Tamnavulin distillery got in touch with Flogas after realising that new legislation,
the Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD) was going to affect them.
Tamnavulin were keen to ensure that they complied with the directive,
and approached Flogas to discover how switching to gas would affect their
Single malt whisky distilling
19.7% per year on CO2 emissions
MCPD is new legislation that has been put in place to help tackle air pollution across the UK. It means that any combustion plant with a thermal rated input of between 1-50MWth will need to limit their emissions – specifically sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM).
The legislation is effective now for any new plants that are built.
Flogas assessed Tamnavulin's fuel requirements and the technical team then designed a bespoke gas storage system, installing a 30T mounded gas storage tank, along with all of the pipework and civil work.
