Construction completed at Celtic Renewables’ Grangemouth ethanol facility

In the UK, family-owned Muir Construction has completed the build of Scotland’s first multi-million-pound biorefinery, Celtic Renewables, at Caledon Green in Grangemouth with the capacity to produce 1 million liters of sustainable biochemicals annually. 

The multi-million-pound plant will use Celtic Renewables’ patented technology to convert 50,000 metric tons of unwanted and low-value biological material into high-value renewable chemicals, sustainable biofuel, and other commercially and environmentally valuable commodities.

Following a competitive tender, Cleantech innovators Celtic Renewables appointed Fife headquartered Muir Construction. Recognizing the positive contribution Celtic Renewables will make to the planet’s future, whilst delivering excellent commercial returns, the Muir board invested in the company.
