    UI researcher makes crude oil from pig manure

    http://www.belleville.com/mld/bellev...e/14449289.htm

    Can the other white meat's manure make black gold? They say you can't turn a sow's ear into a silk purse, but University of Illinois researchers are working some interesting magic at the other end of the animal.
    "We are the first to actually do this," professor Yuanhui Zhang says proudly of his team's ability to turn swine manure into crude oil. He's a bio-environmental engineer at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign who has led the 10-year research project that recently announced a breakthrough in porcine petroleum.

    Amazing.

    The answer is out there. Now all we need to do is get our government to invest in, and the oil industry to support the research to find the most viable alternatives.

    Well, the energy used for this magical transformation is more than the energy you will get from burning the oil. And since nuclear power is not too popular, electrical energy is still mainly obtained from burning oil and coals.

    Go figure...
