Don Hudson, "But Does It Smell Like Fried Clams?". The Chewonki Foundation in Wiscasset, Maine is making renewable fuel from the used vegetable oil of three area restaurants. The biodiesel is replacing heating oil and petroleum diesel, and as a result Chewonki is in the process of reducing its carbon emissions by forty percent, well below expectations of Kyoto Protocols. Join Don Hudson, Chewonki's president, on October 3, 2001 at 12 noon (room opens at 11:30 for lunch) in the Foss Private Dining Room to learn more about this unique project and to explore if biodiesel is a model for energy sustainability on Colby's campus.
