Biodiesel Power: The Passion, the People, and the Politics of the Next Renewable Fuel
Biodiesel Power: The Passion, the People, and the Politics of the Next Renewable
Fuel: Biodiesel Power is a chronicle of the emerging biodiesel industry. Lightly touching on the
technical aspects of the fuel, its qualities, and specifications, the book is largely about the people and
stories of the biodiesel movement. Far from a third-party account, Biodiesel Power comes from one who has
experienced it from the grease dumpster to the boardroom. Lyle Estill has made the journey from backyard
brewing, to being part of a producer and distributor cooperative, to commercial production. Compelling and
timely, Biodiesel Power is the history of biodiesel in the making. It will appeal to a wide audience,
including farmers, truckers, backyarders, and commercial producers, investors, politicians, and all those
concerned about the end of oil.
Author: Lyle Estill is President of Piedmont Biofuels Industrial, LLC in Moncure, North
Carolina, where he also carries the title of "V.P. of Stuff." He has published Energy Blog about the biodiesel
movement for several years and has received numerous awards for his environmentalism and outreach on biodiesel,
including Educator of the Year for 2004 from Environmental Educators of North Carolina.
