Title: In Peoria, a Brisk Business in Biodiesel Research

Abstract: A common roadside plant could have the right stuff to become a new source of biofuel, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) studies. Scientists with the Agricultural Research Service (ARS), USDA's principal intramural scientific research agency, have found that field pennycress yields impressive quantities of seeds whose oil could be used in biodiesel production. Pennycress, or Thlaspi arvense, may be chemically superior to other biodiesel plants for the production of cold weather biodiesel.
