  • Bio-Fuel Grown from Cottonseed Oil in Afghanistan / Corn for Ethanol

    Interesting to see this article about US Marine over in Afghanistan who was trying to reduce poppy production (ie source of opium) by having farmers grow Cottonseed Oil as bio-fuel.

    Marine tried variations of blend of Afghan cottonseed oil and J-8 (military's universal fuel) and got it to run well in generators, etc.

    So is it ironic that we're "fighting for oil" in Afghan/Iraq area but yet trying to have Afghans grow bio-fuel that USA itself won't grow and use in USA?

    In related article, USA now using more corn for ethanol than for livestock feedstock. See at:

      U.S. Navy is currently the world's #1 biodiesel user. BTW as far as biofuels go, at least for me the biodiesel seems to be more reasonable than the ethanol.
