From ketchup to car: Heinz and Ford aim to make car parts from tomato peel
-
Tomatoes are already found in soup, ketchup, and most Italian dishes, but researchers at Ford and Heinz may have discovered the secret sauce to making car parts from them. The companies’ boffins are currently investigating the potential use of waste tomato peel for the manufacture of interior car parts, such as wiring brackets, and dashboard-based storage. The progress follows Heinz’s attempts to find new uses for the unwanted peel, stems and seeds that go to waste when the company turns tomatoes into ketchup. A considerable amount of waste could potentially be saved from ketchup alone, given that over two million tons of tomatoes are made into ketchup by the firm annually, and the peel is unused in this process.
