Farm Grown Energy, Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning 

In early 2000 Stephen Hobbs purchased an oil seed expeller, and began experimenting with vegetable oil as an alternative fuel. Following the construction of a small biodiesel plant, Steven started to produce biodiesel from the mustard & canola crops he grew. Co-products of fuel production, such as the oilseed meal (or press cake) can be used on the farm to provide a high quality ration for feeding sheep & finishing lambs.
