Fish oil runs the generator in Alaska

ALASKA - Oil cooked out of piscine heads, entrails and skeletons is generating heat and electricity for fish processors on the Aleutian Island of Unalaska. </b> <br><br> Alaska companies are among the first in the world to use fish oil on a large scale as a cheaper, cleaner-burning substitute for diesel fuel. <br><br> At Unisea Inc., in Dutch Harbor, thousands of gallons of pollock fish oil are mixed each day with diesel and used to power the seaside plant&#39;s electrical generators and boilers. <br><br> <i>Source: InsideBayArea</i>
