The most environmentally friendly car in the world
Rolls Royce with 8 cylinder 63/4 litre engine
Less than half of all the food grown in the world is actually eaten!
This means that more than half of all the food crops grown is available as
an organic resource (the inedible leaves, stalks, skins, roots and peelings).
Normally these organic materials are regarded as wastes and they are
thrown away to rot, or put into landfills, where they give off methane gas.
Capturing this methane gas (biomethane) and preventing it from escaping
into the atmosphere to become a greenhouse gas some twenty one times
worse than carbon dioxide, and using it as a renewable fuel, is actually
improving the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Other ‘alternative’ or ‘renewable’ liquid biofuels such as biodiesel or
bioethanol are simply ‘less bad’ for the environment than are fossil fuels,
whereas using biomethane as a fuel is doing ‘good’ for the environment.
More environmentally friendly than its makers could ever have envisaged,
this Rolls Royce, fuelled with biomethane, is contributing to reducing the
greenhouse gas position in the environment and is giving a whole new
meaning to the expression “climate change”.
This car is using a fuel which is better for the environment than any of the
other forms of energy. Better than solar, wind, tidal or wave power,
biodiesel or bioethanol, or even hydrogen, let alone nuclear.
Biomethane is clean burning (the lowest CO2 of any hydrocarbon fuel for
the same energy), has low emissions (NOx and PM10 or PM5 particulates),
and with an octane rating of 135 is both more powerful and more
economical than fossil fuel petrol or diesel. It is also safer in an accident.
