Riveria method - a differnt kind of 'petrol'

A possible replacement to petroleum?

A company in Houston called
Sustainable Power Corp. have found a way to create alternate source of energy using farm waste!

The “Rivera Method” takes such agricultural refuse as cracked soy beans, rice and cotton seed hulls, grain sorghum, milo and jatropha and turns them into bio-crude oil. This crude – or Vetroleum, as Rivera calls it - can then be further refined into everything from gasoline to jet fuel and just about every petrochemical in between.

With the world facing a bit of an oil crisis, news of such innovations can be a lifesaver.
