Take tea and produce bio-diesel

Abstract:
A Pakistani scientist has successfully invented a nano catalyst for production of bio-diesel with the help of spent tea for the first time in the world, opening up new avenues for alternative environment-friendly energy resources.

Dr. Syed Tajamul Hussain, a nano scientist working at National Centre for Physics (NCP), and his research team members after untiring efforts during last one year proved with their laboratory tests that used tea can be utilised to produce bio-diesel almost free of carbon emission on commercial basis. The results of their research is going to be published in world reputed Journal of Bio-Technology in its January 2010 issue.
