We, the undersigned student scientists, believe that biodiesel can reduce dependence on petroleum, help address climate change and boost domestic economies.
Biodiesel from a variety of feedstocks can meet contemporary needs for environmental stewardship, economic prosperity, and quality of life without compromising the ability of future generations to meet these needs for themselves.
We support increased investment in research and development and higher education to train future scientists by public and private sources that will enhance biodiesel as a sustainable fuel for transportation and other uses. We are confident that scientific
advancements can demonstrate, preserve, and enhance biodiesel’s ability to help meet the food, feed, fiber, and energy needs of the future.
