Biofuel Made from Whisky By-Products

Researchers from the  Edinburgh Napier University in Scotland  managed to create a biofuel  for vehicles using the by-products of the distillation process of  whisky . According to the researchers the biofuel could be used to  power conventional vehicles without any particular adaptations. It is worth mentioning that the biofuel was created during a research project that lasted 2 years. The two by-products,  “pot ale” , which is a liquid found in the copper stills, and  “draff” (the spent grains) are used as the basis for creating  butanol . The latter can be used as fuel, reports  Physorg . The lead researcher  Martin Tangney  says:  “The new biofuel is made from biological material which has been already generated” . He also mentioned that the biofuel will most like be used in combination with 10 percent petrol or diesel.  “Five or 10 percent means less oil which would make a big, big difference,”  said Tangney. The new biofuel has already been appreciated by a number of sp


  Actually cells are how many How many cells are there in our body and what is the size of it ? For an ordinary men the number of cell in his body will be 10,000 crores to 1,00,000 [ 1 lakh ] in our life time.The size of the single cell will be in Microns ( 1 cell = 10 microns ).The micron is also called as in thousand part in a centimeter or In meter it is one by ten lakhs part which is called as a Micron. While comming under the topic of weight of the it is ren lakhs part of one milli gram of the single cell weighs. ROBERT HOOK who is one of the biological scientists in the yaer 1665 he had found out the live cell with the help of a compound microscope. In the year 1839 SKEDN and SHAWAN are one of the two scienticts found out the primary danger will be with the cell which is declared by them.This is only called as the "STUDY OF CELLS" with this we can find out the life time of each cell wil be known and also the behaviour of it. The cell on the skin will be
