A German inventor says he’s found a way to make cheap diesel fuel out of dead cats.
Dr Christian Koch, 55, from Kleinhartmannsdorf, said his method uses old tyres, weeds and animal cadavers.
They are heated up to 300 Celsius to filter out hydrocarbon which is then turned into diesel by a catalytic converter.
Annelise Krauss of the Dresden Animal Protection Association blasted Koch’s new diesel though, saying: “This is as bad as experimenting on animals.”
How is this as bad as experimenting on animals? When I die, I’d be honoured if someone recycled my carcass! After all, the animals are DEAD. D.E.A.D. Experimenting usually involved LIVE animals, and can be considered cruel.
As commented upon elsewhere on this site, dead animals parts can, and are, used to produce energy. But somehow, it’s ok to use the energy from dead cows, but not from dead cats. Dear me…
