Student Biodiesel Initiative BeginsMon, 30 Aug 2010 17:52:51 CDT
The Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel initiative is up and running with 28 founding members signing an on-line declaration of support for biodiesel. The campaign is modeled after the Scientists for Biodiesel campaign which was launched in February of 2009 and has 125 scientists who have signed the declaration. Both programs are backed by the National Biodiesel Board.
The student group was formed to demonstrate and grow support for biodiesel among tomorrow's scientific leaders. Lucas Ellis, of Dartmouth, pursuing his Master of Science in Biochemical Engineering, is one of four co-chairs of the effort. Ellis says - in college there is an eagerness to become an advocate or have a cause, and mine was the environment, science and educating others about sustainability. He says, biodiesel combined all of those and became my passion.
