Biomass fuel has been receiving attention as the effective eco-friendly countermeasure against global warming. As one of its applications, bio-diesel can be extracted from waste cooking oil and prevent global warming because it is a carbon neutral product.

Shusei Yamada who had previously complete a global tour with his Biodiesel Adventure car, encountered the Tohoku Earthquake in Iwate Prefecture while he was touring around Japan. After the disaster he remained in the area to give support to the recovery of the local economy by planting rapes in the salt damaged farm fields and producing biodiesel from frying oil.

His vehicle is fitted with his own unique oil refining device in the back and it runs on the biodiesel obtained from this device. His voluntary activities range from local school lessons to local revitalization projects. Yamada started his Biodiesel Adventure in order to gain more knowledge and understanding about environmental and energy issues but this project has been extended to various activities to help people recover from the earthquake in Tohoku Area.
