Oil price makes biodiesel competitive

Leichhardt Council in Sydney is taking the opportunity of high fuel prices to respond meaningfully to the threat of global warming by fully converting its fleet of 59 street-cleaning and council vehicles to use biodiesel. :::[Video].

Nick Dyer, the mayor for Leichhardt described the biodiesel as a carbon neutral fuel, "What is grown this year is used as fuel the next."

Other councils in Sydney have plans to go green, and Sydney Ferries is also said to have a biodiesel trial project underway. Because spilt biodiesel decomposes rapidly it is ideal for water transport.
