Biodiesel, North Dakota Style
Jamais Cascio, 28 Mar 05

Green Car Congress points us to an announcement at the website of ND senator Kent Conrad of plans to build the largest biodiesel refinery in North America. A German company, Science and Technologies Industries International, will be the parent company behind the venture. The plant will produce 100,000 tons of biodiesel annually (a little over 2,000 barrels/day); the source biomass will be canola grown in North Dakota and Canada. Construction begins in August, and will be completed by December 2006.

Kind of concerned that although this is a biodiesel and therefore potentially a good thing the crop being used is Canola a GMO. Generates a lot of ethical questions at least for me.

While I am not real happy about GMOs I am more OK with burning them as fuel than eating them, especially if it gets us off of oil.
