Title: The Fueling Power of Plants

Abstract

Chief Chemist Rich Hallen is fueling our nation’s ability to be less dependent on imported oil. He imagines ways to use plants and other biological organisms as cost-effective and clean alternatives for crude oil for aviation fuel, gasoline or diesel. It’s a concept that has been around as long as cars have been on the road. Henry Ford’s first car could run on peanut oil. Today, Rich’s team is doing research that is sprouting new interest in the growing need for biofuels.
