Bogus booze fed to microbes for electricity

Counterfeit booze confiscated by trading standards officers was used to create electricity in Alfreton last week.

Seven hundred litres of “Drop Vodka” was poured into silos at Severn Trent’s Alfreton sewage works where microbes consume human waste and create methane, which is then burned to produce electricity.

A van containing 900 bottles of the made-up brand was stopped in Normanton by Derby City Council’s trading standards team in August after a tip-off.

Officers say the alcohol could have blinded drinkers because it used an ingredient used in cleaning products and anti-freeze, as well as methanol, a chemical which has been known to damage the optic nerve at the back of the eye.
