Veggie Might

A
flotilla of 40 holiday charter boats on the Norfolk Broads in the UK are
being fitted with engines that run on vegetable oil. According to a story
on BBC, the conversion of the charter boats in the popular cruising destination
is an experiment to test the value of "green power".

A
team from Newcastle University will spend next summer measuring emissions
from the launches. The vegetable biodiesel is designed to be free of greenhouse
gas wastes.

"The
Broads will be the first place in the UK to use substantial quantities
of this type of fuel in boats," a Broads authority spokesman told
the news service. "More and more of our visitors want to enjoy the
natural environment without causing damage." Thanks to IBI
