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.

While oil prices are rising, biofuel is an environmental friendly alternative. In Brasil, ethanol as biofuel is very popular. At the Central Energetica Vicentina production site, this ethanol is processed out of sugar cane. The actuators to control the flow in the production process are operated by compressed air. And that compressed air is delivered by a brand new GA 22 VSD FF compressor. Reasons for selecting Atlas Copco were the reliability of a GA, combined with the energy efficiency of a VSD. Op top, the tropical thermostat enables working in high temperatures.

For years now — and throughout this years U.S. presidential campaign — Americans have been debating how to achieve energy independence.
Brazil is the second largest producer of ethanol after the U.S., which uses corn rather than sugarcane.
Even though the global financial crisis has hit the Brazilian ethanol industry hard, global demand for sugarcane-based ethanol is growing. Brazil expects to harvest 12 percent more cane than last year and plans to increase exports by 25 percent.
Correspondent Edie Magnus and Producer Bryan Myers report from Brazil, where ethanol has transformed the countrys transportation.
