Cahills Cheese switch to renewable gas to improve sustainability

September 26, 2019

Cahills Cheese will significantly reduce their carbon emissions following a switch to BioLPG, a renewable gas exclusively available from Calor. Switching to BioLPG will reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% and up to 90%, making a real difference to the environment. BioLPG is supplied to Cahill’s Farm Cheese for processing hot water and most recently forklift truck cylinders. The installation of two Rinnai Instant Hot Water Heaters provides efficiency for their hot water needs.

Cahill’s Farm Cheese is a third generation, family owned business, based just 2 miles from Newcastle West, Co Limerick. The Cahill family pride themselves on the quality and craftsmanship that goes into their cheeses, and also on their drive to reduce environmental impact and continually improve the sustainability of their business.

Calor BioLPG works in exactly the same way as conventional LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) but it is made from a mix of sustainably sourced renewable vegetable oils and wastes and residues, and is 100% renewable.

Calor, who have been in business in Ireland for over 80 years, are among the first companies in the world to deliver BioLPG. Ireland is one of the first markets in Europe (along with the Netherlands, Belgium, the UK, Germany and Scandinavia) to utilise BioLPG. As Calor is available to all energy users who are located away from the natural gas network, it is available to every home or business.

Calor BioLPG, Calor Sales Representative, David Barry; “We are pleased to welcome Cahill’s Farm Cheese as customers for BioLPG. They have a genuine commitment to sustainability right across the business and we are delighted to be able to offer them our 100% renewable energy to help them reach their sustainability goals.”
