Bin company hikes its charges ahead of the pay-by-weight launch

  Bin company hikes its charges ahead of the pay-by-weight launch A waste-collection company has hiked bin charges before the pay-by-weight increases have been introduced. Mother-of-four Joyce Mulligan said she was unhappy to get a notice that her annual charges would increase by €28 from August. "It's terrible my bin charges are going up so soon and I'm worried it could be the first of several price increases," said Ms Mulligan (60), who lives in Poppintree, Ballymun, Dublin. "I was paying a yearly charge of €172 but now I've been informed by Greyhound it is going up to €200 next month. "The Government should introduce a system to cap bin charges at a certain level.

The world’s first car to be powered by fuel produced from whisky waste has completed its first public demonstration drive in Scotland. The sustainable fuel is called biobutanol and the Scottish whisky industry could potentially produce millions of litres of it every year. 

A Ford Focus hired from car dealer group Arnold Clark was used for the inaugural run, which took place at Edinburgh Napier university. Arnold Clark technicians certified the biofuel for use before the drive: no engine modifications were required.

Developed by startup firm Celtic Renewables in association with Perthshire’s Tullibardine Distillery, the biobutanol fuel is produced from draff and pot ale. Draff is sugar-rich kernels of barley, soaked in water, which aids whisky fermentation, while pot ale is copper-rich yeasty liquid left over following distillation. 

Scotland’s malt whisky industry produces almost 750,000 tonnes of draff and a staggering 2 billion litres of pot ale per year, whisky residue that would otherwise go to waste. This is why Celtic Renewables is so confident it could potentially produce biobutanol in such quantities.

“We’re a forward-thinking distillery and we’re happy to support what promises to be a groundbreaking first for renewable energy, for transport and for the Scottish whisky industry alike.”

The next step in the project is to secure sufficient funding to open a demonstrator plant in Grangemouth, with the potential to produce biobutanol biofuel on a much larger scale.
