Bates boards biofuel bandwagon

Bates College, which last fall contracted to buy all its electricity from renewable sources, has taken another step toward environmental sustainability with an arrangement to heat some of its student residences with cleaner-burning biofuel. In late March, Bates started heating 12 residential houses on Frye Street with so-called B5, a blend of petroleum heating oil with 5 percent biofuel made from soy or canola oil.
