Georgia Tech and Ford collaborate on "Green Eco School Bus"

The Georgia Institute of Technology and the Ford Motor Company Fund are partnering on the nation’s first conversion of a school bus to a hydraulic hybrid vehicle that runs on recycled biofuel. Atlanta Public Schools donated the bus for the project. 

On May 13, students at Mary Lin Elementary School painted the "Green Eco School Bus”  and organized a drive to collect used cooking oil for processing into biodiesel, a renewable energy source.
