Production waste in Obeliai Distillery will turn to electricity and heat


7 August 2012, Vilnius

Obeliai Distillery owned by Vilniaus degtinė launched the power plant with
bioreactors, where the production waste – distillers grains – will be used for
the production of heat and electricity, whereof 70 percent is planned for sale.
The power plant is planning to become one of the biggest locations for
utilizing biodegradable waste in Rokiškis surrounding area. Its opening
commemorated the 105th Anniversary of Obeliai Distillery.

“A new power plant will enable the efficient utilization of not only the
distillers grain, but also of various other biodegradable production as well as
household waste. The problem of recycling thereof in the district is highly
relevant, since till now such waste had to be carried to Panevėžys. We have
been discussing for quite some time how to change this situation and now
finally we found the way out. Moreover, this project will enable contributing
to the environmental protection. Some of the heat, required for the distillery,
will be produced in the power plant without using liquid fuel, which, when
burning, emits carbon dioxide to the environment”, – states Juozas Daunys,
General Manager of Vilniaus degtinė.

The capacity of a new cogeneration power plant reaches 1.5 MW. 6 thousand MWh
of electric power and 515 MW of thermal energy is planned to be produced
therein during a year. Total amount of heat will be used for the needs of the
distillery, whereas of the electric power – only one fifth of total amount. The
rest will be sold to the operator of electricity distribution networks.

The project, implemented by Vilniaus degtinė, is just the second case in the
Lithuanian business practice, when distillers grains are employed for the
production of biogas. After modernization of the company, the residual raw
materials will be dewatered, thereby making them fit for improvement of the
ground structure – fertilization.

“It is symbolic that this year we are commemorating our anniversary and at the
same time start a new stage of activities. Now we will be producing energy from
waste. We are also pleased that the investment into the power plant enabled
creating new workplaces for the local residents and the residents of the
neighboring districts”, – states Povilas Stumbrys, Director of Obeliai

The principle to keep the distillery warehouse and the workshop, which was
built in the beginning of the 20th century and which has been performing the
same functions for 105 years now, was complied with where designing a new power
plant. Both buildings are included in the Register of Cultural Values of the
Republic of Lithuania.

Vilniaus degtinė, the owner of Obeliai Distillery, has managed to retain the
position of the only producer of neutral grain alcohol in Lithuania to the
present day. This distillery produces the raw material – grain alcohol, which
is supplied exclusively for the production of Vilniaus degtinė.

The company employs 35 people and most of them are the residents of Obeliai
town. In 2011 approximately 4245 tons of grain was bought from the farmers and
agricultural companies of the neighboring districts. Currently 24 000 (90 %
alc/vol) liters of alcohol is produced in the distillery per day. It is
expected that the production capacity will increase in the future.
