Re: Spectacular ignorance

theres been no change to the ship design at all. The animal fat has been converted into a form of biodiesel which is functionally identical to normal military diesel and can be used in diesel engines and gas turbines. The US Navy have even had some aircraft using it (most jet turbine engines can burn any old crap within reason)
