Cactus fuel running cars in Mexico
August 2019—Maybe this is what made the Roadrunner in the cartoons so fast. Cactus is fueling vehicles in Mexico.
Located in Michoacán, central Mexico, Nopalimex uses the methane -- around eight tons daily -- to fuel a machine called a biodigestor, which powers their corn chip and cactus chip production.
But they have also been testing the leftover mixture in local government vehicles in the nearby city of Zitacuaro.
And best of all, it’s about 1/3 cheaper than gasoline! That’ll needle the oil companies.
