Pernod Ricard's Scotch whisky arm Chivas Brothers is supporting other whisky distillers to cut their carbon footprints by making internal research on enhanced heat recovery technology available to others. The company, owner of brands including Chivas Regal and The Glenlivet, is sharing the design process and implementation insights from applying the technology at its Glentauchers Distillery near Keith in Speyside. The heat recovery technologies employed, including mechanical vapour recompression (MVR) and thermo vapour compression (TVR), are designed to capture and recycle heat generated in the distillation process. The equipment was supplied by Piller Blowers & Compressors GmbH, a manufacturer of blowers and compressors which worked with Chivas Brothers to adapt its kit for the distilling industry.
