Can we use coconuts for energy?



  1. 0 Votes

    Coconut oil can indeed be used as biofuel. Coconut oil sold for as much as $1,000 a ton in 2007; it takes the flesh of between six to 10 coconuts to make a liter of oil. Because it starts to solidify at temperatures as low as 78 Fahrenheit, coconut oil is impractical for use in most climates. Other concerns include the fact that it competes as a food crop. None the less, coconut oil holds promise in helping small island nations decrease dependence on foreign petroleum.
