In a bid to reduce carbon emissions Diageo has teamed up with its suppliers to commission a new gas powered truck to deliver grain to the St. James’ Gate Brewery in Dublin. ‘The Low Carbon Supply Route’ project sees the Guinness brewer partner with malted barley suppliers Boortmalt and Harris Transport to use a dedicated natural gas vehicle to deliver malted barley from Boormalt’s facility in Athy, County Kildare, to the St. James Gate Brewery in Dublin. The truck produces approximately 20% less carbon emissions than its diesel-powered equivalent. And eventually it could be fuelled by renewable biogas, an energy source that Diageo is keen to adopt for its brewing operations.

The truck will be refuelled at a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) refuelling facility in Topaz Dublin Port, the first in a new network of filling stations that will be built by Gas Networks Ireland. The project harnesses the clean power of CNG as an alternative transport fuel for Ireland’s transport network, delivering lower carbon supply chain routes for Irish businesses. It is a partnership between Gas Networks Ireland, Diageo Ireland, Boormalt, Harris Transport and Topaz Energy.
