Our own 18-year-old Anneli Arifi and 17-year Old Ismaili worked on the problems of biodiesel production for two years.

"Our project is based on a system of two reactors for the production of hydrogen storage materials and biodiesel from chicken feathers. When tested, carbonised chicken feathers showed good characteristics for the storage of hydrogen and biodiesel showed good quality. If used, there became cleaner environment, better quality fuel and a healthier future, "said these two bright young ladies attending the International High School in  Tuzla.
