Biodiesel Students Are Fueling Richland Two School Buses

Blythewood High School students made history by fueling a Richland Two school bus for the first time, since starting the five-year-long process of converting cooking oil to biodiesel fuel.

Students in the Bengal Biodiesel program at Blythewood High School made history on April 19, 2024, by fueling a Richland District Two school bus with cooking oil they turned into biodiesel. This project was the culmination of five years of testing, 7,500 student hours, hard work, and dedication from Blythewood students, and their instructor, 2023-2024 District Teacher of the Year, Mr. Will Epps.
