Newly-opened hotel The Westin Singapore is using old cooking oil to power up its limousine service under a pilot programme.

The pilot program, known as The Green Luxury project, is a partnership with local renewable energy enterprise Alpha Biofuels, which provides the technology, and Wearnes Automotive.
