N.Y. Fair's Butter Sculpture To Become Biofuel
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good Morning. I'm Rene Montagne.
The New York State Fair has brought something new this year to the time-honored tradition of the butter sculpture. It's turned that sculpture green. When the fair ends, the state university's College of Environmental Science and Forestry will convert the sculpture's 900 pounds of butter into biodiesel - nearly 100 gallons of biodiesel for the college's vehicles, enough to power five round trips to the Adirondacks.
It's MORNING EDITION.
