Environmentally friendly fuelergonomics
As you know, oil is a limited resource. According to the latest estimates, in a few decades, “black gold” will almost completely disappear from the bowels of the Earth. However, this is not a reason to be upset, because modern technologies do not stand still, and alternative fuels are already being used in advanced countries.
- Bioethanol and biodiesel derived from sugar beet, cane, corn and cereals.
- Natural chocolate. In 2009, a group of engineers created a racing car that runs on chocolate and is capable of speeds up to 220 km/h. According to scientists, the car’s biodiesel engine runs on fuel consisting of waste chocolate and vegetable oil.
- Human fat. The idea to use such a strange type of fuel came to the mind of a plastic surgeon, Dr. Alan Bittner. According to his Bittner, the fat pumped out of one patient during liposuction was enough to fill two cars at once.
- Whiskey. 2013 scientists at Napier University in Edinburgh proposed to make fuel from whiskey. The idea has been embraced by environmentalists, and if the project receives funding, then perhaps in the next couple of years we will be able to ride whiskey.
- Used diapers. According to preliminary calculations, out of 180 million diapers, about 11 million liters of diesel fuel should have been obtained.
