Description - Exploring Sustainable Biodiesel by Amy Townsend

As a fuel, biodiesel is attractive for many reasons. It can be made using a variety of local resources on a small scale. Biodiesel supports local farms and economies and plays a part in community building. It may be made using renewable resources, making it an environmentally preferable alternative fuel. Yet, there are challenges biodiesel producers, regulators, resellers, and others must face. This revealing book introduces some of those challenges, focusing specifically on small-scale producers, who often face several regulatory, safety, and waste disposal challenges. The text discusses issues of quality, safety, storage, waste disposal, regulation, and cooperative politics. It touches upon biodiesel production around the world, examining some of the incentives, markets, production, and oilseed feedstock used in other countries. Also discussed are some of the environmental and social justice issues that are arising due to the non-sustainable production of biodiesel feedstock.
