Biodiesel Fuel Education Program: CSREES and the Office of Energy Policy and New Uses Solicit Applications for the Biodiesel Fuel Education Program. Biodiesel Education will address the need to balance the positive environmental, social and human health impacts of biodiesel utilization with the increased per gallon cost to the user.
