Iran researchers make biodiesel from weed

Iranian researchers have produced biodiesel from the flixweed crop as a potential renewable energy substitute for non-renewable fossil fuels.
Under a project to deliver a new generation of green transport fuel, researches at the Islamic Azad University produced 2 liters of biomass with a capacity to turn into a biofuel.
“Engine and field tests of the synthetic green fuel are currently being evaluated,” Mehdi Alami, an analytical chemistry graduate of the Islamic Azad University said.
