Bio-power fuels – an expanding bio-industry that challenges the Environment Agency. By John Nicholson of Bio-Power Ltd.
Bio-Power is a not-for-profit company that promotes the development and use of bio-fuels, that can be used as a direct alternative to fossil fuels. It began when John Nicholson in North Wales made a simple bio-alternative fuel to keep the family car going during the fuel blockades. It now operates as an expanding network of Bio-power Agencies throughout the UK. Good quality used cooking oil is made into a range of bio-fuels to meet local needs. Bio-power is also working on nearly 30 projects overseas, the largest of which is in China.
