Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini isn't just trying to help the Gunners win the elusive Premier League title, he's trying to revolutionize the fuel industry as well.
The Frenchman, who owns pioneering company GF Biochemicals, kept his business a secret for seven years until last November.

He would team up with business partner and fellow economics graduate Pasquale Granata after leaving Arsenal for AC Milan back in 2008, to form the company, which cost him millions in research, framework and employee payments.
On Wednesday, Flamini announced - via his Instagram account - that GF (standing for Granata-Flamini) had acquired technology-enabled green chemistry company, Segetis.
Flamini also posted next to the image on Instagram: "We founded GFBiochemicals to find green alternatives to oil. The acquisition of the American company Segetis takes us closer. www.Segetis.bio #arsenal #environment #sustainable #GFBiochemicals."
Back in November, the Arsenal man had announced that GF was the first company to mass produce Levulinic Acid (LA), a substance believed to be able to replace oil in any form.
LA could be of great use in many industries, including pharmaceutical, plastic and cosmetics. Flamini should make quite the sum in a few years time, also recouping all those millions spent.
Speaking to The Sun, Flamini said: " We are pioneers. We are opening a new market and it's a market potentially worth £20billion."
