Following on from our last post on algae biodiesel trials in Victoria, a separate company has opened up the state’s first “green” service station, selling only biofuel-blended fuel. Conservo, located in Prahran in the inner suburbs of Melbourne, sells ethanol-blended petrol, such as E10, as well as biodiesel made from canola and tallow. The business also sells a variety of other eco-friendly products in-store, ranging from organic coffee to solar powered laptop bags. Conservo hopes to be using Energetix’s algae biodiesel when it’s available in two years.
