The people of Bougainville have come up with their own solution to the energy crisis — coconut oil. It’s cheap, plentiful and doesn’t pollute. Little wonder other countries, are considering importing it.
From priests to the police force, locals are making the switch to coconut fuel. “There’s no difference in performance and you don’t have to do anything different to your car”, states one consumer. Bougainville hopes to export coconut fuel to other countries. Unfortunately, in cooler climates, coco-fuels solidify and requires the addition of diesel.
