Ramen soup is used as fuel in Japan

In Japan, a new way to reduce emissions of harmful substances was presented. To do this, Nishida Shoun began using biofuels from ramen leftovers.

The president of a transport firm, Masuma Nishida, has come up with a way to use biofuels for trucks – it is partly made up of leftover ramen soup broth. To do this, the researchers mix the fat from the ramen with fuel from waste vegetable oil.

Several of the company’s trucks are already working on this fuel, and by September they plan to transfer all 170 Nishida Shoun vehicles to it. The company notes that this is an effective alternative to petroleum diesel fuel and another way to reduce human impact on the climate.

Nishida has developed a broth separator that can be placed in the kitchens of ramen restaurants. The researcher also came up with a way to remove certain elements during processing so that it can be mixed with biodiesel fuel made from waste cooking oil.

The company now buys leftover ramen from about 2,000 restaurants and uses it to produce around 3,000 liters of fuel per day at its plant.

“In the beginning, I didn’t have any knowledge of chemistry, everything went by trial and error. But my development came out at a time when environmental issues are becoming a big problem, ”said Nishida.
