Irish scientist first to produce car-strength biofuel from whiskey
A Cork-born scientist - Martin Tangney - has become the first in the world to produce biofuel capable of powering cars from residues of the whiskey industry.
Professor Tangney, Director of the Biofuel Research Centre at Edinburgh Napier University, has just unveiled the first samples.
There are also plans to locate a production facility capable of producing several million litres of biofuel a year at the Grangemouth petrochemical plant in central Scotland.
He is president and founder of Celtic Renewables.
