Title: Sustainable Biofuels Systems for Undeveloped Regions
Oregon State University students will work to create a model of implementing vegetable oil-based fuels in the developing world. These alternative fuels are gaining ground in much of the developed world but have yet to do so in poorer countries. The project will work with a community in the Pacific Islands to identify which alternative fuel works best within unique social, economic, and environmental conditions and how best to go about implementing it. The project will serve as a model for other communities around the world.
