Distillery Wastewater Treatment & Anaerobic Digestion (AD)


Whisky distillation is on a journey to sustainability.

The latest UN Emissions Gap Report (2020) shows we’re on the brink of missing the 1.5°C target, with human activity producing greenhouse gas emissions at record high levels.

The SWA’s Sustainability Strategy pledges the industry to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2040 - well ahead of the Scottish and UK government’s net zero targets of 2045 and 2050. We’ll need to work together to improve our chances of success in finding ways to mitigate climate change damage.

Alpheus is the UK’s leading independent provider of water and wastewater asset management services - one of the longest-serving water sector contractors in the UK, and part of the Anglian Water Group. Through bespoke solutions and a partnership-approach, we help our clients achieve operational costs benefits, identify continuous improvement opportunities, embed a stronger safety culture, and deal with unexpected, complex challenges.

"Alpheus have done a first class job supporting our restart after an extended shutdown", Peter Nelson, Operations Director, Glenmorangie

Through successful optimization of technology, such as anaerobic digestion, we’re helping clients increase outputs of renewable energy, reduce water use, improve water quality and ensure environmental compliance.

"Since starting Alpheus has exceeded our best expectations as a partner in running our Anaerobic Digestion plant", Ed Thom, Glenmorangie Distillery Manager
