Companies are setting good examples by using environmentally friendly substances to fuel their products, said Douglas Kingman, an agricultural sciences professor at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas.
"It increases awareness and helps children realize there are alternatives to petroleum-based oil," he said.

Douglas Kingman, assistant professor of Ag Mechanization at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, was one of the ag mechanics judges and was very impressed with the youngsters and the craftsmanship they displayed.
To help judge each project, Kingman said they follow a list of rules provided to them by the show.Most important to Kingman is that the work is done by the student.
"When I'm judging the younger children, like the 4-H stuff, I want to see that they did the work.You can get coached but you need to do the work," stressed Kingman.
When evaluating the projects, Kingman said he tries to stay extremely positive and go to the student's level and make it a teaching experience.The kids, he said, receive so much from building a project and then competing with others.
"It's a definite sense of accomplishment," said Kingman. - News - ISU lands $500,000 grant 06/12/04 [cached]
When the $2 million wind energy turbine project is up and running at the farm -- likely some time in the next year -- ISU will become the first U.S. university to own and operate a wind turbine, said Doug Kingman, an ISU agriculture engineering professor involved with the farm project.
"This will put ISU on the cutting edge of the technology" that is moving into Illinois, he said.
The turbine study will demonstrate whether wind energy is a viable option for area farmers, and whether it's feasible to transfer the energy into existing power grids, said Kingman, who teaches agricultural engineering.
Part of the project, a $130,000 wind tower erected in December, has been used to collect meteorological data.But, wind production isn't possible yet.
"We'll continue to submit proposals for funding" at the state and federal levels to complete the project, said Kingman.
The research team also needs to determine if the energy would be used for the ISU campus, and it needs to find a customer to buy the produced power, he said.
The turbine grant requests were dependent on data collected this spring from the 260-foot tower at the Lexington site.
Northern Illinois-based company NEG Micon paid for the majority of the construction.The company benefits from the data, said Kingman.

Dr. Doug Kingman isn't just an expert on grain bin hazards - he invented a way to escape them.
Kingman, an associate professor of agricultural mechanization with the department of agricultural and industrial sciences at Sam Houston State University, studied grain bin engulfment prevention and rescue while he was getting his master's and doctorate degrees from Purdue University.
"I specifically studied the contributing factors to engulfment," he says. "I traveled to 14 different states and visited with victims of engulfment, and did 9 interviews with families that had lost somebody in an engulfment."
Kingman continued that work when he became an educator. Then, while he was an assistant professor at Illinois State University, he began development of a device that later became patented. The Liberty Grain Rescue Tube, sold by Liberty Rescue Systems of Indiana, is employed when the victim of an engulfment still has his or her head above the grain.
Kingman explains, "The Tube becomes a cofferdam" - that is, an enclosure separating the person from the grain, similarly to a pocket used to enable work done at the bottom of a body of water. "It's taken through even the smallest entryways into a grain bin.
Kingman says the tube has 4 documented rescues, adding, "We think it's been used more than that."
Suffocation in grain Over half the engulfments with which Kingman is familiar involve corn. In most cases, the stored grain had become moldy or otherwise out of condition. "The farmer or worker would enter the bin - generally by themselves - and become engulfed because either the grain flows upon then and traps them, or they have their unloading equipment operating and they're pulled under," he says.
Kingman says Extension Services around the country have become better over the years at educating farmers on the hazards of entering bins full of stored grain. Although the number of reported engulfments has remained the same or slightly increased, he thinks that's a result of improved surveillance techniques.
"I'm not sure that the actual number of cases is increasing, but definitely we're able to find them easier through newspaper articles and other means," he says.
What's changed, Kingman says, is the knowledge base of the rescue worker. He says based on training sessions he's conducted, "You're starting to see people that are responding to rural emergencies that don't have a farm background.
"Most of the engulfments that we found in the Purdue database occurred in grain bins that are 20,000 bushels or less," says Kingman. "Those are also older bins, and I can't prove it but I think they're also bins you don't use (every year). You have a bumper crop, you start using an old bin, and the grain goes out of condition."
Any grain can mold, he points out. There have been fatal engulfments documented in wheat, sunflowers and even rice. "Any time you have a grain bin," says Kingman, "you have an industrial-type facility that needs to be treated with respect.
