Veolia Water works with Helius to utilise distillery by-products

Biomass power firm Helius Energy and Veolia Water Outsourcing have joined forces to produce biomass fuel from distillery by-products.

Helius technology, called GreenFields, turns by-products such as wet grain, draff and pot ale into highly effective organic soil condition, animal feed and biomass fuel for a renewable energy plant. The technology also significantly reduces carbon emissions.

Helius managing director said: We are delighted to have formed a strategic alliance with Veolia Water. Its position as a market leader in industrial water processing will help Greenfields access a much wider range of projects and industries which could benefit from this low-carbon technology.

Under the terms of the alliance, Veolia Water will help fund existing and future GreenFields development costs and projects with Helius. Additionally, Helius will continue to develop markets for GreenFields products and Veolia Water will operate the relevant projects.

Veolia Water Outsourcing director and Veolia Water Industrial Outsourcing David Wright said: We believe GreenFields will allow us to reduce water and carbon footprints for our clients as well as providing them with a long-term sustainable solution to environmental pressures that the industry faces.
