Green Fuels: Biodiesel

With gas and diesel prices costing more than $3 per gallon in some parts of California, commercial fleets are increasingly turning to Biodiesel as a cheaper, more environmentally-friendly alternative.

Biodiesel is made from recycled French fry cooking oil, as well as being produced from soybeans, canola and other crops.

Since 2001, production of biodiesel has doubled, reducing Ozone-depleting engine emissions and increased engine performance. These benefits have been cited by a growing cadre of supporters, ranging from community activists to major petroleum companies.

Join host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network as we learn about the current status and future of this popular alternative fuel.
