Yeah, hey, top up the oil, will ya? And check the tire pressure and ketchup reservoir, okay? Thanks.
Ford Motor Company and H.J. Heinz issued a joint announcement yesterday, describing a new partnership aimed at producing car parts fromtomatoes. Well, at least they’re not using lemons.
Heinz ends up with a large number of byproducts while using more than two million tons of tomatoes annually to make ketchup and the hope is that the skins, peels, stems and seeds can be recycled to make a plant-based plastic.
They hope to make wiring brackets and storage bins.
