Abstract
With the United States dependence on foreign oil imports, new renewable sources of fuel compatible with combustion engines must be found. A source of this new biofuel could be the jojoba plant which is native to the desert Southwest. This is a plant which grows on non-arable desert lands which do not presently support food production in the United States. The use of this feedstock as a fuel would not impact food prices or production in the United States. In addition, the success of this project would support the growth of a new agricultural industry in the poorer sections of the desert Southwestern United States while decreasing U.S. dependence on foreign oil imports. Before this can be done, the ability of the new biofuel to replace diesel fuel will have to be done which is the objective of this project.
