Japanese researchers have found a more efficient way to produce biodiesel by using common place sugars. The sugars used are cheaper to purchase and do just as good a job of turning fatty acids into a badly-needed liquid as the currently used chemicals.
Cheaper production of biodiesel could lead to a greater adoption of the fuel since it takes little (or nothing) to make diesel cars run on the fuel. About 40% of cars in Europe consume diesel, with the market in the United States of America expected to grow as a result of rising gas prices.

This is great news for many in Canada who have been turned onto the alternative fuels market.
My friend Mike Divell ran a diesel school bus to Vancouver from Toronto and back, and took nine people with him, and they spent $215!!! Now he’s running his own business to get the project really off the ground – http://www.wiesel.ca
