In the earlier study, Junk and the team noted that most of the 700 million gallons of biodiesel produced in the United States (2008 data) came from soybean oil. But there has been growing concern that using soybeans and other food crops for this purpose could raise food prices.

Could and did. Seems the Powers That Be ignored the fact that alcohol can be made from things like yard waste and went right after our most universal crop, doubling and then tripling the prices overnight, which, since corn is used in thousands of products, sent food prices soaring.

We have a new alcohol fuel plant here, which has contracts with surrounding cities to take their green waste -- like yard clippings and stuff from land clearing along with spoiled crops. It doesn't take edible vegetables and food crops.

There are rending plants about, especially in states which raise a lot of food animals, like cows. They usually remove dead cows from farmers fields for free, toss the reeking carcasses into the machinery and out pops hides for leather, thousands of gallons of liquefied mixed oil for processing, tons of cooked meats to be shipped out for animal food and bones to be turned into fertilizer, carbon black and other things.

The best thing is, the farmers don't have to pay anyone to remove their decaying animal carcasses. Cows are forever getting hit by lightening and some ranches have several scattered about their fields after a storm.

The oils are shipped out to other processing plants, which then refine them into bio-diesel, versions used in the makeup industry, and commercial lubricants.

Here in Florida, they can have all the gators they want, though I'd prefer if they took as many of the freaking Anaconda's and Boa Constrictors that morons released into the wilds as they can.

I bet we could run a couple years on rendered Republicans.

Wouldn't the good news for everyone else be if it was made from hippies?

/or fat people

So now when you say "see ya later, alligator" to someone driving off, it will be literal?

Subby still is stealing phrases from comedy acts from 1968.

They're worried about biofuel driving up corn prices so they decided to move up the food chain?  I don't doubt there is some wasted animal fat that could be used, but is there enough to make a dent in the biofuel supply without driving up the price of meat?

No way, have you seen how they clog up Congress? Can you imagine what they'd do to an engine?

I see my point was made in the boobies...

Bio fuel comes from bio-mass, and the fuel doesn't care where the bio mass comes from...

well, I take that back, ethonal is usualy  from vegetative mass, and bio diesel can just as easily come from rendered animals as it can from vegetative oils. mix it all together and refine it and no big deal.

also, you can make soap from Alligator fat as well.. so there is that
