Alternative fuels

For a long time the Norwegians have seen the opportunities available from huge whales, now a Norwegian businessman is looking to create fuel in the USA.

Lauri Venoy wants to use the by-products of liposuction to develop bio-diesel.

Bio-diesel can be produced from plant oils and/or animal fat, and the Norwegian sees the scheme as a renewable energy source, newspaper Dagens Naerinsgliv reports.
And where else would you base such a venture than Miami, Florida.
Venoy is in the process of signing an agreement with US hospital giant Jackson Memorial. This deal would give Venoy & Co. around 11,500 litres of human fat a week.

"Maybe we should urge people to eat more so we can create more raw material for fuel," Venoy said.
