Goal: Thank Tullibardine Distillery for helping bio-fuel company Celtic Renewables turn whiskey into fuel for free
With hummers leaving carbon footprints like burnt rubber, the quest for bio-fuel has become imperative. Scientists continue to explore different formulas that might help the environment: corn, crops, and even water have been utilized to make cars run, but they seem to have other unwanted effects and have been difficult to commercialize.
A small company with big ideas called Celtic Renewables has recently discovered a formula for alternative fuel that utilizes the waste from whiskey distilleries. In Scotland, where whiskey flows like water, it is a no-brainer that the leftovers be put to good use. Tullibardine is the first to partner with Celtic Renewables and has agreed to give tons of whiskey waste away for free.
The process of converting this waste into fuel is simple enough for the average driver to understand. Celtic Renewables and Tullibardine Distillery use bacteria to feed on sugary leftovers such as draff and pot ales. This produces butanol, which is directly used to fuel a vehicle– literally any vehicle, not just those modified by the truly ecologically conscious.
The use of whiskey leftovers is one of the first fuel alternatives that can fill up any car. Tullibardine’s partnership with this start-up company has made the road to a cleaner environment feel closer than ever. Please sign the petition to thank Tullibardine Distillery for their generous and continuous contributions to Celtic Renewables and to the world.
Dear Mr. Ross,
I would like to express my gratitude for your thoughtful partnership with Celtic Renewables. Your distillery should be proud, not only for crafting good whiskey, but for paving the way to a better environment. I hope that other distilleries, and all companies who have the potential to make a positive difference, will be inspired by the example you have set.
I understand that disposing of your by-products costs about £250,000 per year; your commitment to Celtic Renewables and their innovative ideas does not go unnoticed. In response to your distillery’s kindness, I will be a loyal patron and encourage others–especially those who enjoy a pleasant libation–to support you. Working together, with efforts both big and small, we will build a better environment and economy. I sincerely thank you for your contribution.
[Your Name Here]
