Africa (TGW) – Eat chocolate, help the environment and fight global warming.
British firm Ecotec has developed a process in which waste from chocolate producing factories is used to make biofuels.
Waste will be used to power the BioTruck, which will depart on November 26 from England to drive to Africa.
"The chocolate waste used to be used in landfill. But now we can make it travel as biofuel," said organizer Andy Pag who will be one of the two drivers on the trip.
"This is to show that you can have environmentally-friendly biofuels and that you don't have to convert normal diesel engines to use it," Pag said.
Sadly, the car’s exhaust does not smell of chocolate. "No! I'm afraid the exhaust doesn't smell of chocolate," said Pag.
