WORLD PREMIERE Over the past decade, biodiesel has developed from a curiosity to a growing industry with the potential to undercut the dominance of Big Oil and fuel America’s transportation needs — and it all starts with recycled cooking oil.

Hot Grease profiles biodiesel’s innovators, entrepreneurs and influential supporters like Senator Al Franken, working to ensure the future of this green energy source.
