Kentucky Company Pushes French Fry Power

A new bill in the Kentucky Legislature could make the Tri-State a leader in alternative fuels such as bio-diesel, which was used for Cincinnati buses in a pilot program, WLWT Eyewitness News 5's Brian Hamrick reported.

Griffin Industries, located in Northern Kentucky, creates bio-diesel by recycling used cooking oil from fast food restaurants into diesel fuel.

Bio-diesel, which can also be made from soy beans, has been fueling local bus services on and off for a couple of years, and now some Kentucky legislators want to make a law out of it, Hamrick said.

Griffin Industries is among the companies pushing for a bill that would mandate all diesel fuel sold in Kentucky to be 2 percent bio-diesel, and Dennis Griffin, chairman of Griffin Industries, thinks the bill would be positive a step toward energy independence, Hamrick said.

"I'm normally against mandates, but in this case, I think it's the only way to get alternative fuels into the mainstream of American consumers," Griffin said.

"Before the bill becomes a law it faces some serious opposition, mostly from the trucking industry; they're concerned about the cost and what it could do to the mechanical and emissions systems of trucks," Griffin said.

Combining 2 percent bio-diesel with the current fuel would add about 3 cents to the price of a gallon, Hamrick said.
