Celtic Renewables is constructing its first state-of-the-art commercial processing plant at Caledon Green, in Grangemouth Scotland, to transform locally sourced low-value materials into low-carbon, high-value, sustainable products. The facility will process the residues from local distilleries to produce three high value sustainable chemical products – Acetone, Butanol and Ethanol – as well as a high protein animal feed product.
Recognised as a milestone in the transition to a low carbon economy, and a significant contributor to Scotland’s green recovery, the construction of this plant has received tremendous support from local level to national government. Scottish based suppliers and contractors have been used wherever possible and when completed this will be the first bio-chemical refinery at the heart of chemical manufacturing in Scotland.
The Caledon Green Plant will be the company’s flagship demonstration facility and the springboard for the commercialisation of its process technology across the world.
