LOGAN -- Utah State University officials are proposing a program to provide information about biofuels through its statewide extension offices.
The Logan Herald Journal says the programs would provide a clearinghouse for information about using plants for fuel, food and fiber, as well as other uses.
USU Extension associate director Charles Gay says research, such as an ongoing biofuel project in Salt Lake County, could be coordinated by the extension office.
Another program that could be coordinated through extension offices is the Freeways to Fuel National Alliance, which would use land adjacent to roadways and airports to grow biofuel crops.
The program has been approved by USU officials, but still needs the approval of the Board of Regents. The program would not cost additional money.
