FUEL explores one possible solution to the coming energy crisis. Made from vegetable oil, ‘biodiesel’ fuel, is an economically sustainable, environmentally sound alternative already widely used in Europe. It has the potential to reduce dangerous green house gases, boost America’s sagging economy and reduce our dependency on foreign oil.
The documentary follows author Josh Tickell as he engages people on both sides of the energy divide, providing viewers with a never before seen picture of the energy landscape of America. The film takes viewers through America’s breadbasket to meet farmers, who grow crops such as sunflowers, soybeans, and canola for biodiesel. Moreover Tickell speaks with engineers, scientists, biodiesel producers, and biodiesel consumers. Viewers learn that biodiesel offers a way to produce 100% of our fuel domestically right now.
