Turning alcohol into energy at an Alfreton plant

Seized alcohol from Derbyshire is being poured into digesters to create energy.

The digesters generate methane that is then turned into electricity that gets fed into the national grid.

Thousands of bottles of illegal alcohol seized by Derbyshire trading standards in December is going to be turned into electricity. Severn Trent will mix the contaminated alcohol with chemicals to generate enough energy to power hundreds of homes.
