At a recent Trade Fair at the Lion Yard, Cambridge, post doctoral researcher Dr Adam Harvey had the opportunity to explain his work on bio-diesel to Cambridge MP Ann Campbell.
Bio-diesel is an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuel. It is made by converting waste food processing oil into bio-diesel fuel and it may be used in any conventional, unmodified diesel engine.

Chemical Engineering undergraduates in their third year at Cambridge undertake a major design project and this year they are designing a bio-diesel plant. The prize for the best group design is to be provided by biofuel.org.uk.
Bio-diesel research project team members are Professor Malcolm Mackley, Dr Adam Harvey and Bob Skelton.
