Four companies, two Japanese and two Chinese, have gone quartersies on a new plant to refine cooking grease into biodiesel. Unlike the kitchen-grease cars that we've reported on in the past, where the oil is merely filtered and held in a special tank, the biodiesel created by the new plant in the Shanghai area will be added to petroleum-based diesel as a way to stretch fuel supplies and decrease diesel prices. The plant will have the capacity to process 40 tons of grease into 17.3 tons of fuel per day.
