Amtrak, the US government owned passenger train service is planning a feasibility test for a biodiesel train powered by beef byproducts. The fuel, made from rendered fat from cattle, contributes fewer emissions than conventional diesel. Amtrak received a $274,000 grant from the Federal Railroad Administration to perform a one year test run for the biofuel powered Heartland Flyer train between Fort Worth and Oklahoma City in the next year.
