London's Buses, Like Its Workers, Will Soon Be Coffee-Powered
Waste coffee grounds will be used to help fuel some of London‘s buses, Royal Dutch Shell (RDS-A) and clean technology company bio-bean said on Monday.
A new biofuel, which contains part coffee oil, is being added to the London bus fuel supply chain where it can be used without the need for modification, the companies said in a statement. Bio-bean and partner Argent Energy have so far produced enough coffee oil to power one bus for a year if used as a pure-blend for the 20% bio component and mixed with mineral diesel to form a B20 fuel, they said.
Can you just imagine the aroma of the exhaust...
