India Ships Its Biodiesel Raw Material Abroad
Think of the stupidity of it all - a country that bleeds from being ripped off (like most of the rest of the world, I may add) by oil producers, embarks upon the growing of a biodiesel crop - jatropha - and then finds that it has no blending facilities to use this fuel itself and shipss it abroad. Treehugger has a piece on this monumental stupidity in India: http://www.treehugger.com/files/2008/10/india-biodiesel-producers-forced-to-ship-fuel-abroad-lack-infrastructure.php Would that the chowderheads in New Delhi think seriously about investing in one or another of the government owned refineries to keep the country from bleeding . . .
