Biodiesel at Work in Vermont Ski Resorts and Schools

Via the Times Argus:
Mention soybeans and most people think of tofu or Chinese food. But at Sugarbush ski resort, soybeans are powering groomers on the slopes and keeping snow off parking lots.

Thanks to some recent grants, fuel called biodiesel is being used to power up two Vermont businesses and a school while also helping to bring renewable fuel use into the mainstream.

The $2,500 grants were awarded to the Vermont Coffee Co. in Bristol, Sugarbush Resort in Warren and Vermont Law School in South Royalton by the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund, a nonprofit created by the Legislature in 1995 to retain jobs and enhance the environment.
