World famous Ford cars are about to get a new fate in terms of their manufacturing. As Heinz and Ford are exploring the idea of using tomato skins, a by-product in ketchup production, to make cars.
The concept is surprising, but Ford could make use of the by-product. They could make the plastic parts for the cars with plastic that does not need petrol.
Heinz uses over 2 million tomatoes per year to make ketchup, this creates a lot of waste as the skin, pips and vines are not used.
