Chinese scientists have announced the development of an environmentally friendly fuel oil similar to diesel oil produced from shrub fruits. Experiments prove the fuel is applicable to various types of existing diesel engines.

Chen Fang, president of Life Science Institute of Sichuan University based in Southwest China's Sichuan Province, said the clean oil is better than China's best diesel oil. The emission of the oil is up to the Euro II standards, Chen said, adding that they will make it up to the Euro III emission standards in "two years".

Chen, a botany doctorate, said his institute plans to manufacture the biological oil in cooperation with the corporate world for commercial productionl. "We anticipate the production capacity will reach 20,000 tons next year."
