New process creates 'bio oil' from waste wood

It sounds almost too good to be true: The notion that somehow industrial wood waste could be converted into a source of reliable, environmentally friendly energy with the ability to power an entire town.

Now, thanks to Canadian technology and a partnership with Vancouver's DynaMotive, the waste is ground into fine sawdust, vaporized, and converted to "bio oil." The company uses the oil to power a new turbine generator that produces 2,500 kilowatts of electricity, enough to power 1,400 homes.

I say this looks promising. Hopefully more wood product companies to do this.

In addition to this, Bio diesal, hybird vehicles, Bio fuel from pigs, windmills etc we could really reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

Edited to add Bio fuel from pig "waste' "poop" not pigs themselves.
