encourage bicycles, less car use, bio-diesel, new technologies

Innovative ways of transport are on the drawing board from our motor cars to the led vehicles seem to be the future. Combine these green fuels and new technologies we will shortly be moving all over the place with very little green house gas emissions. Biodiesel refers to a non-petroleum-based diesel fuel consisting of short chain alkyl esters,made by transesterification of vegetable oil,
which can be used (alone, or blended with conventional petrodiesel) in unmodified diesel-engine vehicles. Biodiesel is distinguished from the straight vegetable oil,sometimes referred to as "waste vegetable oil", "WVO", "used vegetable oil", "UVO", "pure plant oil", "PPO") used (alone, or blended) as fuels in some converted diesel vehicles.

"Biodiesel" is standardized as mono-alkyl ester and other kinds of diesel-grade fuels of biological origin are not included. Car Bi-Fuel technology for methane made its debut in 1995 and the technology has undergone steady refinement during its ten years on the market. Since production of the latest generation of Bi-Fuel engines got under way in 2001, sales have met with considerable
successand more than 12, 000 Bi-Fuel cars have been sold in Europe

The methane Bi-Fuel cars offer better environmental properties and lower running costs without impairing the driving pleasure, comfort, safety or versatility. Available in most European countries. Methane gas is available in most European countries, with a total of about 2.000 public filling stations - and the number is increasing rapidly, especially in Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy.
