You have to hand it to Finland, as one of the world’s top eco-friendly countries, they have done it again.  A campaign called Kinnkutemppu aims to take the unwanted fat from Christmas hams and turn it into renewable diesel fuel at its Porvoo refinery.  When you consider that ham is the most traditional Christmas food in the area, with almost 7 million kilograms (14,000,000,000 pounds) sold a year.  That is a lot of potential food waste.
