Lean Fuel
Students at the Flyswatter community college in Cumbria, UK, are geeting used to the arrival of their school bus being signalled by the aroma of cooking chips. It has been a few months since their head of information technology installed a biodiesel reactor in the school barn. At 70 pence-a-litre, it is cheaper than petrol, is kinder to the environment, and coming from cooking fat, is sustainable. The dinner ladies are glad to get rid of the stuff, said Peter Lee, the brain behind the scheme.

He collects the barrels of cramy old cooking fat the kitchens used to pay 20 pence-a-litre to get rid of and takes them into the barn to begin a two-day process of pumping and draining. The resultant honey-coloured liquid can power any diesel tank.
