We would run biodiesel if it was available here. None of the distributors want to sell it. There was a new 40 million gallon per year plant being built, but they ran out of money and got cold feet. It was going to use canola which we can grow here more so then soybeans. And like you said, CO2 is going to be a tough issue with trains, ships, and what all else that are vital to the economy.

In the end you should have nitrogen and oxygen, but the few that I've seen do it have seen no benefits. I wonder how much the CO2 stays in the ground though? Is it enough to get carbon credits?
Sounds a little hokey? Got any links?

Too much junk/toys to mention, ever changing due to too getting bored too quickly. I need a 10 step program!
Want to call? I'm in the book. Want to argue....First explain the square root of negative one....lol

To me it doesn't sound hokey, but I don't know of anyone around here that does that. It's about the same principle of appling anhydrus amonia (SP?) You use a pull behind bar with knives that inject the gas into the ground where it can naturally break down into nitrogen. Good stuff, the corn loves it. You can tell where you didn't get a good seal from the soil too as the corn is about 2 feet shorter than the rest.

Too bad about not having bio in your area of Idaho. If you guys do get it someday, watch out though. The solvents in the bio have been breaking down the sludge in the bulk tanks and tractor tanks. Makes for a lot of fuel-filter changes and degrading rubber lines.

This website has a few small pictures and talks a little about it. Kind of wierd, these people are really talking it up. Reverse your CO2 footprint with the CO2Xchange
