To reduce emissions scottish manufacturing firms awarded £3.4m

To reduce emissions scottish manufacturing firms awarded £3.4m: The Scottish Government has allocated £3.4 million to assist industrial businesses in reducing emissions.

The first round of funding from the Scottish Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (SIETF) will go to eight companies, with additional private money increasing the total commitment to more than £10 million.

Projects include converting gas combustion furnaces at a glass production facility to a cleaner, oxy-fuel system and conducting a feasibility study on collecting carbon dioxide during the fermentation process at a whiskey distillery.

Every year, an estimated 14,000 tonnes of carbon are projected to be saved, comparable to the yearly emissions of 5,200 homes.

“Bold, urgent and collective action is required across all sectors to ensure we become a net zero economy by 2045 at the latest. The Scottish Industrial Energy Transformation Fund is providing substantial, tangible support to help industry and our manufacturing sector decarbonise in response to our climate targets.” said Net Zero and Energy Secretary Michael Matheson.

“The Fund will support a wide range of manufacturing companies to commit to lowering emissions and future-proofing their operations. I hope many more will follow suit and look forward to the next round of applications supporting just that.”

The government will provide up to £34 million in financing over five years, with the second round of applications currently open.
