Woohoo! Biodiesel!

According to Biodiesel Magazine’s Web site, Milagro Biofuels of Memphis produced its first biodiesel Monday in an old cotton oil mill.

Milagro is waiting for samples sent to the EPA to be certified and expects to begin selling its product by the end of September. Oddly enough, Harold Ford, Jr., the congressman currently running for U.S. Senate, filmed part of his campaign commercial at the new biodiesel facility. But, in the interest of maturity and environmentalism, we’ll refrain from making a gas joke. This time.
