ABSTRACT
Reports that researchers in Idaho have developed a biodiesel fuel produced from used French fry oil. Combination of the used oil and ethanol to produce hydrogenated soy ethyl ester (HySEE); Launch of a demonstration project involving running a Kenworth tractor-trailer rig on a 50-50 blend of HySEE and regular diesel fuel.
