Refining vegetable oil into diesel fuel

Summary: At the AlwaysOn Venture Summit in Half Moon Bay, Calif., Peter Bell, co-founder of Renewable Fuel Products, explains that his company's reactors are small and mobile enough to be loaded onto the back of a truck and taken wherever the waste oil is being created. They process an end product that can be used wherever people use diesel, with no special modifications. Through money from carbon credits, he says that developing countries will soon be able to gain access to this reactor as well.
