Vino vs. Carro?


“About 1.1 billion bottles’ worth of wine from France, Spain, Italy, Greece, and Hungary ended up at facilities like Caviro. It was converted ubti a total of 95 million gallons of ethanol – enought to power 6,277 cars in Swedenthat run on a mix of bio-ethanol and petroleum for more than a year.” [Wired Magazine, Sept. 06, pg92]

[Not only “wine” can be helpful in this case, but the seeds and skin of the grapes as well. The skin contains carbohydrates that can be broken down to sugar and the follow fermentation. Plenty of ethanol can be distilled this way to assist biofuel options.]

Yes – Cars will soon run on wine!
