BrewDog to build bioplant at HQ


BrewDog will invest £14million on an on-site bioplant at it’s headquarters in Scotland.

The Ellon HQ is one of the most technically advanced breweries in the world, which includes a state-of-the-art canning line.

BrewDog aim to become carbon neutral by 2022 and this is another step towards that goal.

The company’s founder, James Watt, wrote on Twitter: As part of our commitment to sustainability we have just signed off a £14m investment into an onsite bioplant at our HQ.

“The facility will convert our organic process waste to site generated biomethane (replacing all of our grid gas) & further reduce our water usage by over 40%.”

The design statement submitted alongside the application to Aberdeenshire Council read: “The proposed investment will help reduce the £2m annual disposal costs by circa 50%, as well as cutting other costs and increasing the resource efficiency of the site, as it aims to become carbon neutral during 2022.

“It will also help the business to meet the target set by the Scottish Government for meeting carbon Net Zero by 2045. It will also put the company at the forefront of the transition of the brewing sector to zero-carbon manufacturing and distribution.

“The plant will deliver a range of benefits for the site and the wider Brewdog business.”
