Title: Biodiesel as a sustainable alternative to petroleum diesel in school buses

Clarkson University students will conduct a feasibility study that examines using locally produced biodiesel as a replacement fuel for school buses. The team will also evaluate children's exposure to diesel and biodiesel exhaust emissions. Diesel exhaust is potentially harmful to human health and is a significant air pollutant because it is composed of harmful chemical substances.
