AutoblogGreen reader Mike C wrote a comment recently about the waste-oil-to-fuel work that's going on at his school, Keene State College. I read that and thought this story deserved mention here on the main page. Whenever students are doing something clever and green, I like to share their stories (e.g., here and here).
The student's project is a pretty standard one that collects waste grease from local establishments and then recycles it into biodiesel that Keene city and KSC vehicles burn. Last week, the KSC student team was chosen as a finalist in the EPA's People, Prosperity, and The Planet award competition. As a finalist, the students will be headed to DC to try and win funding (up to $75,000) to expand the program.
