Fuel your car on 'leftover' whisky
Scientists are the cleverest idiots around. They can crunch huge formulas and rethink the world on our behalf, but can they cross a road safely? Not a chance. They're just as likely to burn their house down as they are likely to talk in binary.
And so, some boffins have hatched an idea where cars can be fuelled with leftover whisky. The Napier University team have teamed-up with Perthshire’s Tullibardine distillery to booze into fuel.
They want to make butanol with leftovers whisky (mixed with bacteria), even though - in a just and right world - there would never ever be any leftover whisky, ever.
Prof Martin Tangney, of Napier firm Celtic Renewables, said: "This project demonstrates that innovative use of existing technologies can utilise resources on our doorstep to benefit the environment."
Tullibardine managing director Douglas Ross said: "We are delighted to be partnering Celtic Renewables in this innovative venture."
So, hands up if you want to drive a car that's more drunk than you are.
