In New Zealand, began to use the waste of beer production as fuel


Beer as fuel?

The technology of recycling brewing waste into ethanol, which reduces the use of petroleum products for the production of motor fuel, was developed in New Zealand.

The fuel is called Brewtroleum and contains 10% of ethanol derived from beer production wastes. This is significantly lower than the result obtained in the US, when all GM cars servicing the deputies of the National Convention of the Democratic Party in Denver were fueled by 85% biofuel made up of ethanol.

The main advantage of Brewtroleum production technology is the use of non-specifically produced agricultural products, namely waste destined for disposal. This 98 octane fuel is compatible with most cars, including Mercedes-Benz, Holden and Jeep, produced after 1986, all Porsche is younger than 2007 and most of the motorcycles are BMW and Honda.

However, it can not be said that biofuels are suitable for all internal combustion engines, especially those with a small volume. Problems arise when refueling chainsaws and lawn mowers, as well as some cars. Brewtroleum biofuel requires compliance with storage conditions and its properties at this stage are unstable over time. The developers promise to improve its performance.
