MIT will get a $25,000 eco-grant and also be host for a free mtvU Earth Day concert with Angels & Airwaves.
Called biodiesel@MIT, the project was selected by experts and from votes cast online. The idea is to create the nation's first university solar-powered refueling station that converts waste vegetable oil to biodiesel. Needs for the project include a biodiesel processor, building a photovoltaic array and training student-led staff to oversee the operation. The project looks to go online later in the year.
