Valencia's Minister of Land and Domiciles has announced regional government plans for a service vehicle fleet running on alcohol made from oranges.
Plants in Valencia which crush oranges to make cordials and soft drinks currently produce 240,000 tons of orange waste annually.This is expected to double by 2010
"Experiments in California show that this could be enough to produce 37.5 million liters of fuel ethanol," Sr. Gonzalez informed a climate change conference. "We have a car plant and we have the oranges."
