Vehicles that run on castor oil or beef liver and hydrogen peroxide

A bunch of chemical engineering students built cars that run on unusual stuff such as beef liver and hydrogen peroxide for the “Chem-E-Car” competition at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers’ meeting.


The challenge was to design a car running on fuels created by controlled chemical reactions, using ingredients most of us have in the kitchen. “The two put together produce a gas, and the gas drives the car,” said Bill Byers with American Institute for Chemical Engineers.
