BIODIESEL BASICS II

There a lot more to learn and study and explore about this biodiesel subjects. One of my source of information is the Oil and Fats International magazine published by DNG, UK. Actually, the magazine covers all about news, technologies, information, advertisement, announcement related to oils and fats internationally. Well, biodiesel is part of this subject as well. Below is an article that i would like to share regarding biodiesel in the west, which i read recently...from the magazine....

Fuel Speed Ahead: Biodiesel Gains Record Momentum

Peter LaVaute says people know him as an environmentalist. But he's also a businessman who looks for lucrative opportunities, and he's hoping to build multiple biodiesel plants. LaVaute is part of a trend that some have likened to a gold rush. Jenna Higgins writes.

"I believe we're about to run into a brick wall - lack of fossil fuel," he said. "As a country, we're going to have to change the way we provide goods and services. We're going to have no choice but to become self-sufficient."

LaVaute, president of Ecosense Solutions, sees biodiesel as one of the most promising opportunities to fill a growing need for domestic fuel. He also sees it as a chance to help with something else that is important to him - revitalising rural communities. One of his biodiesel projects involves working with farmers in central Nebraska on developing a multi-feedstock biodiesel plant. In addition to the more typical soybean oil feedstock, the plant could make biodiesel from sunflower oil.

"One of the most exciting things to me is to develop a resource a community has, but has overlooked," he said. Sunflower seeds are 40-50% oil, he said, and the crop is relatively low-input and drought resistant.

For now, LaVaute's Nebraska biodiesel plant is just the seed of an idea. But he is among a growing number of entrepreneurs with biodiesel projects on the drawing board.
The National Biodiesel Board (NBB) estimates there are 30 plants currently in the early planning stages. Another 45 are already under construction. Compare that to the number of plants already operating, 60, and it's easy to see how fast the industry is growing.

"I take about 25 calls per day from people interested in starting biodiesel plants," said Donnell Rehagen, NBB's chief operating officer. "Frankly, the pace of the growth is sometimes startling. We hope we don't see empty biodiesel plants in five years, but that's for market forces to determine. It's unlikely that everyone will succeed."

"I have been using Advanced Gain Pro for 3 months now and I must say I'm simply amazed. I really didn't think the product would have this many benefits. I really only purchased the pills to help the reliability of my erections. But to my surprise every aspect of my penis and sex life has improved. I have larger, harder erections easily, and I can really satisfy my girlfriend fully now."
