BrewDog has signed off on a £14 million (€16.2 million) investment into an anaerobic digestion (AD) facility at its headquarters in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

According to a LinkedIn post by BrewDog’s CEO and co-founder, James Watt, the AD plant will convert BrewDog’s organic process waste to site-generated biomethane, replacing all of its grid gas, and reduce its water usage by more than 40%.

In January, plans for the company’s AD facility, water treatment plant, CO2 recovery plant, and associated energy generation centre were recommended for approval. In an article published by the Evening Express at the time, the plans form part of the company’s ambitions to become ‘the world’s most sustainable drinks firm’ and become carbon-neutral by 2022.
