A Whisky Fuelled Drive in Scotland


Scottish Scientists have developed a method of creating biofuel from the by-products of Scotch Whisky production. The Fuel could be used in as petrol replacement but in more likely to be blended with Diesel or Petrol.

The process involves using the pot ale (the liquid from the copper stills) and the draff (the spent grains) as the base to produce butanol, which can then be used as Biofuel.

The main advantage of this process is that it can be made from current waste products so there is no "massive environmental damage to forests and wildlife" as there is in the production of other biofuels, where crops are grown specifically for fuel.
