National Biodiesel Day

Jefferson City, Missouri, commemorated the National Biodiesel Day last March 18, the birth anniversary of Rudolf Diesel, inventor of the diesel engine.

Alternative fuel proponents pushed for more incentives and rigorous renewable fuels standards in the US to mark the occasion.

If you believe producing biodiesel requires big buck, here is an e-book to teach you how to make your own, not just biodiesel but electricity as well.

Here in Davao City, the Davao Green EAGLES (Energy Alternatives for Green Living and Economic Sustainability), a coalition of alternative energy advocates which I lead, will hold a forum on March 25.

The College of Engineering and Architecture of the Ateneo de Davao University will host the forum. Engr. Randel Espina will discuss pico hydro, a very small hydro-power system which can be used in our rural areas.
