Bio Truck Expedition
Anybody see this one:
He is trying to travel around the world only emitting a maximum of 2 tons of carbon. This is the same as the G20 CO2 yearly per person emissions target for 2050. I think the assumption is that biodiesel and vegetable oil have a negligible carbon impact. The vehicle is a Mercedes which includes some interesting sustainable technology retrofits - particulate filter on the exhaust, composting toilet, solar power, wood stove, and of course biodiesel and SVO compatibility.
Right now he's in the Kosovo area en route for Iran....
Wow, he made it through Iran and Pakistan, only to get arrested in India - for using a satellite phone! Didn't know that was against the law:
After 7 days in prison he is free on bail awaiting a trial....here's hoping he can put this behind him. Worth keeping this law in mind if anyone is headed to India!
