The Power of Chocolate!

By PSU EcoMerge Capstone - 9:30 PM


Currently, the world has been introduced to its first Formula 3 racecar made from eco-friendly materials.

The car consists of a biodiesel engine that gets its power from biofuel created from vegetable oil and chocolate waste. In addition, the car is steered by a polymer wheel made from carrots. Many of the components are made from potato starch, flax, and cashew nut shells.

This racer is expected to reach speed up to 144 mph with modifications. It has a BMW turbo diesel engine. Currently the car had reached 60 mph. It is amazing to see the technological advances that result from putting renewable and sustainable resources to use!
