Biodiesel Safety

Hmmm… There seems to be a mini-trend going on. On Friday, a biodiesel plant in Idaho exploded, killing one worker.

In late June, a fire destroyed a biodiesel site in rural Clackamas County.

I can almost hear some intrepid legislator thinking, “boy, we better regulate these things.” The question is, will it be someone who really wants to make sure this fledgling industry gets off the ground safely, or will it be a shill for the petroleum industry trying to strangle it?
