Whiskey Powered Cars

Posted: August 18, 2010 in News, Vehicles

A new biofuel is being developed in Scotland that uses the 2 main by-products of whiskey production, pot-ale & draff. This bio-fuel has 30% more power output than bioethanol and can be used in conventional petrol cars with no modifications, and has the potential to fuel airplanes. It has been said that it could contribute to the EU set standards of 10% biofuel as apart of all fuel sales by 2020. The most important thing is that it comes from waste product of the whiskey industry and therefore doesn’t compete with food supplies.

Here is a more complete article on the alcoholic biofuel.
