Biodiesel and the Carbon Trust

Biodiesel is up to 80% cleaner than diesel and researchers here at Cambridge have been working on a commercially viable way of turning vegetable oil into biodiesel.

The work was supported by an Applied Research grant from the Carbon Trust. The trust was clearly so impressed by the way their money was used to turn a ground-breaking idea into a project with huge market potential that they are now featuring the team in an advert for Applied Research grants.
