Comment Wont someone think of the cows? (Score 1) 170

And reader Mike writes "Here's something to raise a glass to: recently the Rothes consortium of whiskey and scotch distillers announced that they have partnered with Helius Energy to install a power plant fueled entirely by whiskey by-products. The completed plant will use biomass cogeneration to convert draff and pot ale from the distillery into 7.2 MW of electricity -- enough to power 9,000 homes."

but they generally use the draff for cattle feed! poor cows wont be getting any lovely whisky food!

The world is coming to an end--save your buffers!
