Georgia Senate Passes Biodiesel Bill

If signed into law, the bill would require local schools and state agencies to use fuel containing at least 2% biodiesel.

"The state senate approved a bill on Feb. 13 that would increase the production and use of biodiesel, the petroleum-free alternative fuel. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Brian Kemp, R-Athens, requires that local schools and state agencies run diesel vehicles, including school buses, on fuel that contains at least 2 percent biodiesel.

Because the state and local schools consume millions of gallons of diesel annually, the bill, if it becomes law, would be a boon for production of biodiesel, a cleaner version of petroleum diesel that's made from vegetable oils or animal fat. What's more, biodiesel doesn't emit greenhouse gases when burned."
