The future king is committed to lowering his carbon footprint, but experts warn the solution isn’t practical for most people

Britan’s Prince Charles said he had converted his favorite vehicle, an Aston Martin he has owned for 51 years, to run on what he described as “surplus English white wine and whey from the cheese process”.

His Aston Martin. the same car driven by the James Bond character in early Bond films (pictured above) has been modified to run on a fuel called E85 – made up of 85% bioethanol and 15% unleaded petrol.

Bioethanol can be derived from different sources – including in the case of the prince’s car – surplus wine and alcohol extracted from fermented whey.
