Unlike standard processes, CTI can use a combination of vegetable oils such as soybean, corn, and canola, as well as used cooking oil and animal fats, in a high-yield process.


This quote is from an article I posted in the Biodiesel thread a while back. I was not happy to see that even biodiesel is being corrupted!!! :twisted:

This plant is opening end of 2005 in Pennsylvania and planning to produce 10 million gallons per year. I wonder how much of it will be dead animals! :(

I dont think they would kill animals just to have their fat for fuel. Its pretty gross to be running on animal fat but gasoline and coal probably has some dead animal in it too.

It's quite simple, really, since the meat industry already has a huge lobbying pull on our government. The exploitation of animals and now the environment is secondary to corporate america's success and it's ability to fund candidates in their campaigns. If you can break that circle of "Favor", you have a chance of making reform...otherwise, it's going to be a rough road until we exhaust every cash-flow opportunity. :twisted:

( I didn't articulate this as eloquently as I would have liked to, but, i believe you get the point)

just like ppl dont kill just for the fur, or tusks.... come on now. ppl will have an excuse to justify animal murders anyway they can, and now "fuel" will be another to add to the list

and yes, i understand fossil fuel has dead animals in it. which is why I no longer drive my car or purchase gasoline.

fossil fuel has dead animals in it, in the same way that mud / dirt has dead animals in it. I don't think it's exploitation in the same way. If someone kills an animal for meat, then uses the skin for leather, and the fat for fuel, I wouldn't want any of it. But if an animal died of natural causes, and has rotten, and is just debris, I don't see the problem, from the animals point of view that is. I understand the environmental problems associated with fuels.

EDIT: Or is there other stuff in fuels that I don't know about! I would like to hear more

Fossil fuels isn't really fossil fuels, its from diatomes. Its a plant. Dunno if all oil is like that, but I was shocked when I heard it since I grew up with the notion that we were running on "dino fuel".

I heard that oil was made from (small) sea creatures which died millions of years ago. I dunno which creatures its meant to be made of. Maybe that source of information is unreliable, I can't remember where I hoiyde it
