Cleveland-based company powers up the Bi-fuel Chevrolet Impala with organic waste
Haven’t we always dreamed of living in a utopia where sewage could literally be used to power our transport systems? Well, we might not have reached that dream completely, but the 2015 Bi-fuel Chevrolet Impala is a start. The car gobbles up leftovers and waste to power up and is the next greenest way to get around since the dawn of electric vehicles. To power up the car, the Quasar Energy Group based in Cleveland uses organic waste to produce a renewable energy called Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). This is then used as a fuel for the car.
The gas in question is a mixture of gases given off by the breakdown of organic materials in oxygen-less environment. This results in the generation of methane which is then processed and purified to make Renewable Natural Gas. Given the fact that CNG’s source is organic waste materials, this seems to be a pretty clever way to get rid of garbage and power up cars, at one go!
