    The biodiesel scene has been invariably looked upon as niche product which has the potential to disrupt the established petroleum hegemony in the energy market. It(biodiesel) will always be subject to manipulation to stymie its expansion. One way get away is to disagragate the production manufacturing and use into small/micro enterprises at local/rural level. I am researcher in rural renewable energy domain from India and I would happy to interact with others along these lines
