HEMP FOR FUEL ONE OF HEMP’S MOST DESIRABLE CHARACTERISTICS IS THAT IT CAN BE USED FOR THE PRODUCTION OF FUEL🌿

1940’s Henry Ford released a car that was made and run off of the plant material, hemp.

Can You Grow A Car??

Henry Ford’s first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and the car itself was constructed from hemp

CAR MADE AND RUN OFF HEMP

Back then, metal was needed for military supplies, so there was little to be used for car production.

This slowed the industry.

Henry Ford and his team got creative.

In a span of 12 years, they had invented the first automobile that was almost entirely made from plants!

The team was able to make strong bioplastics.

Some say these plastics are up to 10x stronger than steel!

Hemp Oil to Biodiesel

Okay so now we have a sustainable car, now let’s fill it up! And, this too can be sustainable.

Almost 100% of hemp oil can be converted into biodiesel (97% to be exact).

Unfortunately, this concept was ahead of its time and there was not a lot of interest.

These days we are pushing for more sustainable options in every aspect of living.

Perhaps this is a concept worth revisiting?

Hemp Cars Making a Return

By fueling the car with biofuels, it is 3x greener than today’s Electric Vehicles.

Biofuels such as biobutanol made from corn stalks, or cellulosic ethanol, which Ford made from hemp.

Ultimately, it is nice to see alternatives to everyday items that reduce our biological footprint.

Even small changes make a big difference.

Bringing your own bags to a grocery store, reusable water bottles, not using plastic straws are small acts that make a difference.
