Tastes good, burns clean

Seems like alternative energy projects are all the rage these days in Washington state. Fuel production begins this week in Bellingham in a yearlong project to convert used restaurant oil to biodiesel to supply trucks in Washington and Canada.

The Bio49 project was created by the Northwest Energy Technology Collaborative with a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency.

Puget Sound Energy is running one of its trucks on 100 percent biofuel, converted from oil supplied by the Washington Restaurant Association.
