Journey to Forever reasons for learning to make biodiesel and ethanol:
* A renewable fuel for our vehicles.
* As an environmental project for local schools.
* A means to improve energy self-reliance in rural communities.
Both biodiesel and ethanol are clean, grow-your-own fuels that can be made on-site in small villages from renewable, locally available resources, for the most part using simple equipment that a village blacksmith can make and maintain.
These fuels are among a wide range of sustainable rural energy options. Others are methane (biogas) digesters that turn livestock and crop wastes into cooking and heating gas, solar energy box cookers, wood gas, charcoal and fuelwood, wind power, water power.
