The gist of the link above is that all the Four Loko that had to be yanked from shelves because a handful of underage drinkers couldn’t handle the liquor they shouldn’t have been drinking is being distilled and the ethanol removed is being resold as an alternative fuel. The cans are being recycled too.
4Loko is being recycled into ethanol by recycling company MXI Environmental Servicesand others, reports the Associated Press. It’s not as crazy as it sounds; MXI Environmental has developed a business out of recycling a whole long list of rejected alcohol-based goods, including beer, wine, and cosmetic products, as well as other liquid and solid wastes.
