City of Seattle stopping use of virgin soy biodiesel
Not sure the City realizes that the soybeans are mostly being grown as cattle feed, and the oil is a byproduct. (See next post containing more info and a sample letter to the EPA). But I am encouraged that they are looking into using waste oil based biodiesel. Maybe they could scale up the Dirty Hands Coop's bring-your-own-oil style structure. We just celebrated our 2nd anniversary of continuous operation. I think we're the most consistent producer of sustainable biodiesel in the area!
