New biofuels testing lab opens at A-B Tech

Excerpt from the article at the Renewable Energy website:

The first biofuels testing lab in the Southeast has opened at the Enka, North Carolina, campus of Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College (A-B Tech ).
Researchers at the lab “will provide convenient, cost-effective testing of biodiesel to assure quality products are going to market,” says Sam Brake, of the North Carolina Department of Agriculture Bioenergy Research Initiative, located in Oxford.
“Consumers will be assured they’re getting high-quality product,” says Brake, who added that the N.C. Department of Agriculture awarded the project a $150,000 grant. “Long-term, it should help boost demand and production.”
