DonQ

9 DonQMaking its rum sustainable is a huge part of DonQ’s business plan.

The whole rum-producing process has been redesigned to be as sustainable as possible. The CO2 created is given to local soda companies. The waste water is converted into biogas and then put back into the distiller. Excess steam is directed into a turbo-generator that makes electricity for the factory.

Even DonQ’s waste products are put to good use. The runoff is composted, turning it into fertiliser or soil additive.
