explosion in Gadsden
Officials in Gadsden are
investigating what caused a biodiesel converter to blow up Wednesday
morning. The blast left a hole in the ceiling at Gadsden's Fleet
Management facility. Engineers from Biodiesel Logic suspect a faulty
heating control is to blame. Officials say that City vehicles will
continue to run on biodiesel fuel, but it's too soon to say if this
machine will be repaired or replaced. City officials hope the
incident will not create a slowdown in residents donations of
cooking oil. City officials stressed that Even though their machine
will be down for about a week it is important that donating of
cooking oil not be slowed. Once the machine is repaired they'll be
back in the business of making biodiesel.
