Grass cuttings 'to be used as biofuel'

1 post in this topic

Grass cuttings could soon be used to power cars, under a scheme to transform garden waste into biofuel.

The Carbon Trust has announced it is working with the University of York to research how using microwave technology could turn garden and wood waste into biofuel.

Using microwaves the waste is heated in the absence of oxygen, through a process called pyrolysis. The research aims to look at how this process could have the potential to produce a biofuel to blend with fossil fuel or use as a pure fuel.
