, both in their vehicles and (mainly in the Northeast) for home heating.
That fuel is biodiesel
, which is made primarily of vegetable oil and alcohol and can be used in any modern diesel engine.
A Japanese research team has created an environmentally friendly catalyst for producing biodiesel
, an alternative fuel, from renewable sources.
