Local press in Argentina reported that the upcoming concerts of singers Ed Sheeran and Paul McCartney would be powered by biodiesel produced from used cooking oil, Biofuels Digest wrote on 5 February.

The government of Santa Fe city had also set up a contest to encourage people to donate their used cooking oil in exchange for the chance to win tickets to the concerts, to be held in February and March.

Having biodiesel powered concerts is part of the #BioenergizáTuMúsica (#BioenergizeYourMusic) movement on social media, Biofuels Digest said.

Pink Floyd singer Roger Waters’ concert in November at La Plata city’s Estadio Único stadium was the first to be powered by biodiesel in Argentina.
