Growers Work on Renewable Oil Sources for Vehicle Fuel
SUNNYSIDE, Wash. - Lower Valley researchers are looking for a renewable fuel source that could reduce dependency on imported petroleum and give farmers a new cash crop.
"Our oil prices are rising and there is more interest in alternative fuel," said Ted Durfey, owner of Natural Selection Farms Inc., a Sunnyside composting firm researching canola for use in biodiesel.
"Biodiesel production from seed crops promotes sustainablility for one of our nation's greatest renewable resources - agriculture," he said.
