A Little Dram'll Do You


By Cari Martens

This new technology is part of the “Green Hot” movement, as well as “Shielding.” In CultureWavesâ„¢, the more ways we can protect our environment by using things that are already becoming a waste product, the better.

Here, by-product from Scotland’s distilleries is being used to clean up contaminated ground and polluted water. As reported by the United Kingdom’s “Telegraph”:“http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/main.jhtml?xml=/earth/2008/03/05/eawhisky105.xml, scientists at Aberdeen University have created the Device for the Remediation and Attenuation of Multiple pollutants, known as DRAM.

They claim the process can remove chlorines, heavy metals and pesticides.

The food and beverage industry is an entity that isn’t going away anytime soon, so it’s only natural that we find ways to use the waste.
