ABSTRACT
The article reports that a communication from the Piedmont Biofuels cooperative in Pittsboro, North Carolina explains how its biodiesel fuel is made and marketed. It also reports how a new tank has been built behind the Carrboro, North Carolina Public Works Department that holds B100, a form of biodiesel made from converted vegetable oil. Biodiesel advocates tout its advantages: burns cleaner, releases fewer toxins into the air, is renewable, nonflammable and nontoxic, and also helps engines.
