Similar to Jacksonville's internal biodiesel production but on a smaller scale, the University of Tennessee is working on a self-sustained project of their own. Project leader Scott Curran, a senior engineering student, says they can produce 200 gallons of B20 in one week from leftover vegetable oil from the UT Dining Services which will be used in the campus' 11 facility service vehicles.
The Associated Press reports that the project is being funded from a $10,000 grant from a special "green power" fee the students adopted in 2003. Jenna Higgins-Rose from the National Biodiesel Board says about 12 universities are using biodiesel for vehicles on their campuses, however, not all are producing it internally.
