Albany-  Albany High Students are researching the efficiency of Biofuels.

Friday students got a chance to show off their knowledge and experiments at Albany High's first Biofuels Expo and Science Fair. Tenth grade chemistry students have been learning about Biodiesel and its affect on the environment. Through individual student experiments they learned its benefits.

"Plants and things of that nature they're part of our environment and they help us live and to breathe and trees and we need to preserve them," said Lydia Carter, a 10th grader.

"We live here, it's the earth we have to protect it or we're going to be the ones to suffer the consequences of our actions," said Alonza Lewis, a 10th grader.

The winners from Friday's Expo will show their projects at the Regional Science Fair at Darton College in February.
