Fueling a breakthrough

Abstract:
If scientists at Oregon State University have their way, soon farmers may be able to power tractors and combines with biodiesel created from their own soybean, canola, rape and mustard seed crops.

Using microtechnology, OSU faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, along with researchers from the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute, have developed a new way to create this earth-friendly energy source.
