Matters coming to a head…

This from the latest Northwest Business Insider

Heineken UK today officially launches its new biomass plant at Royal Brewery in Manchester. The brewing giant, formerly Scottish & Newcastle UK, has invested £17.5m in Manchester and the same amount at the John Smith’s brewery in Tadcaster. Construction started in 2007 and both plants have been operational since October. The plants will initially burn woodchip to generate steam and electricity, with the ability to fit equipment to burn spent grain at a later date. Any excess power will be sold to the National Grid. Hugh Jones, director of solutions at the Carbon Trust, said: “It seems appropriate to launch this
project as we approach the crucial climate-change talks in Copenhagen.
Businesses must take the lead in using energy more wisely and efficiently, and I
am very encouraged to see.”

We at MCFly will drink to that… (well, one of us will. The other Doesn’t Drink)
