March 26th – Anchorage Biodiesel Night – Free!

March 5, 2008

Wednesday March 26th, 7-9pm at the Anchorage Museum, 7th Ave and A St. FREE!

Speakers and films sponsored by the Alaska Biodiesel and SVO Network: a Sierra Club Smart Energy Solution, SEAKsolutions Juneau, and Anchorage Mayor Begich’s Office.

Biodiesel: What is it? Why is it so great? Where can I get it?

Join us for an evening with biofuels experts from across the state, and award-winning short documentary films. Tour operators, fleet managers and interested individuals are invited to explore practical options for a sustainable Alaska.

From fish oil and Alaskan Canola crops to local restaurant grease, Alaska’s biodiesel and straight vegetable oil systems can displace a significant amount of diesel, save our communities from high fuel prices, reclaim wasted resources and reduce our carbon emissions.

Speakers include Will Taygan, Arctic Vegwerks – Chugiak and Anthony Destefano, SEAKsolutions – Juneau.

Films include the short “French Fries to Go” about Telluride’s Granola Ayatollah of Canola, Charris Ford and his restaurant-grease powered Grassolean, and “Greasy Rider” a cross-country voyage powered by waste vegetable oil.
