Leave it to Scotland to discover that whiskey lowers not only inhibitions, but also carbon emissions.
Edinburgh Napier University has developed a biofuel based on whiskey byproducts, the BBC reports. Researchers used the byproducts to create biobutanol, a fuel that provides 30 percent more output than ethanol.
If they successfully bid for it to be available at the pump, it could be a financial windfall for the Scots, who count whiskey as a major industry. Plus, since the fuel only needs the byproducts from the whisky production process, that would mean more (and cheaper) booze. Sounds like a win all around.
