Now a peg of whisky for your car too!

London: A peg of scotch whisky can reduce carbon emission too as scientists in Scotland have developed a biofuel from the by-products of whisky which can be used to power cars.

Now a peg of whisky for your car too!

Edinburgh Napier University has filed a patent for the biofuel which has been created in two years by the university's Biofuel Research Centre. The university now plans to create a "spin-out" company to take the fuel to the market, according to Daily Mail.

According to the researchers, two by-products from the whisky production process - "pot ale", the liquid from the copper stills, and "draff", the spent grains - are used to produce butanol which can be used as fuel.
