I get it, biodiesel isn’t exactly on your mind, even though today is Biodiesel Day. But my grandpa is a canola farmer, and so it’s something I think about —especially since my grandpa’s friend Kevin Therres designed a Jet Engine RACE CAR that uses 100% canola biodiesel. (I got to see it race!)
Biodiesel is an environmentally-friendly fuel for diesel trucks, cars, buses and tractors, made from a variety of crops—like soy and, of course, canola. But, did you know, biodiesel isn’t just an alternative fuel source for vehicles? At Sustainival, a super fun carnival in Fort McMurray, AB, all of the rides run on canola biodiesel. Cool, right?
You can learn more about Mr. Therres’ race car in the Superman Duffy comic, GOTTA JET! And right now, illustrator James Grasdal is working on some incredible art for another book in the series, MYTHCONCEPTIONS. It’s an adventure set in Sustainival! I can’t wait for you to read it!
Gotta jet! Have an awesome weekend!
