The article highlights the presentation on air quality and mining of Richard Nelson, Kansas State University engineering professor, at the 2008 MINExpo. Nelson cautioned the attendees of the right blend of biodiesel and his presentation include a photo of a fuel filter of a truck that dripped fat after being tanked up with an imperfect blend of biodiesel. The author said that biodiesel maybe an eco-friendly alternative to traditional diesel but it has many unusual traits.
