The US army uses its stomach (and brains) to make biofuels in Iraq (http://www.treehugger.com/files/2008/03/_army-runs-on-its-stomach.php). The US Army will be using kitchen and other waste to produce biofuel. The drive has come from the need to cut down on diesel convoys that are targets, but for whatever reason its beeing done, its good to see the army using a little biofuels imagination. If the idea of portable biopower plants takes off in Iraq, then there is an outside chance that they might make their way into the mainstream.
