London buses switched to biofuel from the coffee groundsNovember 21, 2017
To switch to a new biodiesel with coffee, the capital transport companies did not even have to re-equip their buses.
From this Monday, the city buses of the capital of Great Britain were transferred to a new type of diesel biofuel containing coffee waste. This is reported by the BBC.
According to the processing company, coffee grounds are collected from London cafes and production lines of instant coffee for further extraction of coffee oil from it. This combustible material is the basis of a new type of biofuel. According to the company, only residents of London for a year throw up to 200 thousand tons of coffee grounds. So waste with 2.5 million cups of an invigorating drink will be enough for refueling one bus for the whole year.
Londoners are very active in finding sources of biofuel for their transport system. Earlier they wanted to process a huge frozen block of edible fat, which was found in the city’s sewage system. Urban buses in the UK have already driven diesel biofuel, produced on the basis of animal fat and waste vegetable oil.
