Plants High in Triglycerides


I have been studying biodiesel fuel and plan do a project involving biodiesel for the national science far next year. I was originally planning on determining which oils formed the most efficient fuel, although I recently had an idea. What if we took a versitle plant capable of growing and thriving in harsh conditions, extracted the fatty acid tryglycerides from the plant and made fuel out of that? Problem is I'm not sure what such plant is highest in extractable triglycerides. A google search was not sufficient, so I was wondering if anyone else had any good insite.

Search for "oil crops." Some are suited to harsh conditions.



As below, so above.
