Four Loko: Not Fuel for You, Fuel for Your Car
Well, they are now being bought back by MXI Environmental Services to turn it into ethanol for vehicles. Not only are they getting the Four Lokos, but they are also getting other companies similar alcoholic energy drinks that were taken off the shelves.
The way that MXI turns the alcoholic energy beverage into ethanol is that they distill the alcohol from the drink and turns and sells it to be blended with gasoline. They don't just stop there either with the recycling. MXI recycles the whole product of Four Loko. They sell the cans to recycling plants and then recycle the packaging and pallets.
