Biodiesel workshops offered again

NEW ORLEANS, LA Bill Carney, the AgCenter's environmental educator, says there was standing room only at a series of workshops in June. The next series of one-day workshops are set for July 29-31, with plans by the AgCenter to host advanced sessions on biodiesel production this fall.

The sessions come as the average price of diesel hit a near-record $4.684 a gallon in Louisiana on Wednesday, according to AAA and the Oil Price Information Service. That's nearly $1.87 a gallon more than a year ago.

Carney says it takes at least $800 in equipment to make batches of 25 to 30 gallons of biodiesel.
