Biodiesel made from used tyres could be the solution to Australia's fuel security problems

Fascinating but I can't help but wonder about the smoke. There has to be smoke.

No worries, environmental "green" smoke doesn't count as Global Warming Greenhouse CO2 emissions.  Because it's Environmental smoke.  It gets a Hall Pass.


Professor Brown said without testing the fuel himself he cannot put an exact figure on emissions.

"I would say that it is possible, with the system they've used to create a fuel that would have probably similar emissions to diesel," he said.

A smokestack pumps out smoke into the air.

"Not necessarily any worse, but I mean I doubt whether they'll be 10 times better."

Just think, if you run out of fuel you simply put your tires in your tank!
