Fill her up please, and make it myco-diesel - The fungus Gliocladium roseum, found inside the Ulmo tree in the Patagonian rainforest, has a potential so startling, that the discoverers have coined the term "myco-diesel" to describe the bouquet of hydrocarbons that it breathes."This is the only organism that has ever been shown to produce such an important combination of fuel substances," said Gary Strobel, a professor of biology at Montana State University.

Ecofasa turns waste to biodiesel using bacteria - The process doesn't yield that much actual fuel: just one liter of biodiesel from 10 kg of trash. The project is now in a development phase, but Ecofasa said that a commercially viable model could be ready in three to four years. (Patent) (Video Link Spanish) (AutoBlog Green'' Oct. 18, 2008)

US Military Investigating Fuel from Waste - Two companies are working together on a portable system that converts coal, natural gas, and biomass into diesel and jet fuel. The military could use the system to convert waste created at military bases--food scraps, paper, wood--into a fuel for military jets and vehicles.

Directory:Waste to Energy >Directory:Changing World Technology - Thermal Depolymerization Process - Technology claims to have a viable method of reforming organic waste into oil. However, the system has cost far more, and the small issues much larger than they had initially estimated. (PESWIki Aug. 26, 2008)

Directory:Microwave-based Oil Extraction - Methods of using microwave frequencies to extract oil and gas in seconds from shale, coal, and tar sands. The microwaves are tuned to an optimum frequency to separate the component parts which can be burned or condensed into liquid fuel, using only a small portion of the energy produced.
