Double-Decker London buses run on fuel from coffee (3 photos + video)
Traditional energy is gradually replaced by green sources. However, a full transition to talk a bit early. Particularly difficult problem of the use of petroleum products in Metropolitan areas, where clean air is less, and a branching transport network is needed everywhere. In some States in the struggle for environmental improvement are trying to introduce public electric transport. Meanwhile, the firm Bio-Bean put on connecting useful and enjoyable. Resourceful inventors proposed the creation of the grounds from the coffee Ipatovo real biological fuel. According to experts, some double-Decker London buses already run on biodiesel B20, which is 20% of a new component.
Waste from coffee supplied by factories producing instant coffee, coffee shops and restaurants, get the oil and have him make a new biofuel. As stated in Bio-Bean, a new coffee product enough to ensure the movement of the bus throughout the year, but the firm intends to increase its production capacity for processing larger quantities of raw materials. While Bio-Bean is able to process 50 thousand tons of waste per year, while Londoners annually produce 200 thousand tons of waste coffee. By the way, the remaining dry residue want to use for space heating.
Partners of this project are Shell and Argent Energy. A definite plus is that the use of biodiesel does not require modification of the bus, so the transition does not entail additional costs. How much costs the production of coffee fuels not reported.
