It appears that Team AcidRain’s achievement at the 2008 Imagine Cup Finals in Paris has caught the imagination. The team, which hails from NUI Maynooth, has created a means of enabling diesel engines to use vegetable oil. They finished second in the embedded technology competition at the Imagine Cup.
Here’s just a selection of the reactions and stories so far:

Well done again to Aodhan, Brian and Karl!
