ABSTRACT
The article reports that Goran Jovanovic, a professor at Oregon State University, has developed a credit card-sized biodiesel reactor that takes in canola oil and alcohol to produce biodiesel. Ethical Energy is negotiating with Jovanovic to buy his technology to be used as the center of a biodiesel system that the company is selling to rural farmers. Ethical is planning to incorporate Jovanovic's technology into a mini-biodiesel production unit the size of a suitcase.
