Type:

Forum.


Description:

The project is to create a group that would apply themselves to come up with small scale production of biodiesel from edible or non edible oils or local crops like corn or sugarcane that can be used to create ethanol or biodiesel, to drive diesel engines with modified biodiesel. Creation of the small setup to make ethanol or biodiesel can help people use things like diesel generator, tractor and tube well in the rural context. . The idea is to create ethanol or biodiesel from local crops at a reasonable cost so people can run their tractors and tube wells from local resources at a low cost without burning expensive diesel. The forum will encourage and generate funding for this work to quickly get to a local industry that can resolve the energy problem in the next five years and reduce dependence on foreign oil and gas that is expensive and takes precious foreign exchange..
