The North East is well suited to production of feedstock for bioethanol and alcohol production on account of its relatively high yields of low protein wheat grain, its proximity to points of processing and, through its mixed farms, opportunities for recycling nitrogen and thereby saving greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. ADAS completed a strategic review sponsored by One North East through the North East Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC) as part of the Regional Strategy for Transport Biofuels and in association with Northeast Biofuels. The work relied on alcohol yield data made available by Scotch Whisky Research Institute (SWRI) as well as further analysis of data from HGCA funded projects, the Recommended List and RL Plus. The analysis considers the best variety choice for the North East, and the implications of grain yields, drying and fertilizer prices, and their influence on methods and levels of GHG emissions and accreditation.
