Beijing — When Lu Xirou goes to a Chinese restaurant, he’s not thinking about food. The Beijing biofuel executive thinks of gas stations, and climate change.
“China produces 3 million tons of waste cooking oil a year,” Xirou said over a recent meal. “This can be recycled into 3.5 million dons of bio-diesel. This can reduce Carbon dioxide emissions by 7 million tons. That’s a huge number.”
