Production and technology of bio-diesel: seeding a change

Excessive oil dependence in today's world requires us to look at ways to reduce this dependence while augmenting the supply of transportation fuels to meet society's needs and ensure progressive development. While research focuses on alternative fuels, it is now apparent that liquid hydrocarbon fuels will continue to be important globally, at least in the near foreseeable future.
