Rudolf Diesel


Despite precise written sources, the concept of using vegetal oil as an engine fuel likely dates when Rudolf Diesel (1858-1913) developed the first engine to run on peanut oil, as he demonstrated at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900. Unfortunately, R. Diesel died 1913 before his vision of a vegetable oil powered engine was fully realized. In Early 2000 a large resurgence in popularity for operating diesel engines on various forms of biodiesel, which was answered by corporates claiming that the crops necessary to supply such fuel would oppose the food and agricultural industry. More recently it has been proven that certain forms of algae, can also provide a natural diesel.

The United States Department of Energy estimates that if algae fuel replaced all the petroleum fuel in the United States, it would require 15,000 square miles (39,000 km2) which is only 0.42% of the U.S. map.
