Farmer's Almanac TV: Iowa's Biodiesel

Iowa Public Television will feature a visit to Victor Lin's Iowa State University chemistry lab during Friday's episode of "Farmers' Almanac TV." Lin, a professor of chemistry, has developed a high-tech catalyst that he hopes will revolutionize how biodiesel is produced. The technology features nanospheres just 250 billionths of a meter in diameter. But fill them with the right chemistry and they can take some of the energy, labor and toxic chemicals out of biodiesel production.

The episode will be broadcast at 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 8, 2007 on Iowa Public Television.

The "Iowa Biodiesel" segment is available on the Farmer's Almanac TV video Web site.
