Jun. 8--NORTH ANDOVER -- For some people, "biodiesel" might seem like a novelty product for which only hybrid car-driving tree huggers wouldn't mind paying a premium.
But that's destined to soon change. Starting July 2010, any Massachusetts resident who drives a diesel vehicle or has an oil-heated home will be using biofuel. That's because the Clean Energy Biofuels Act of 2008 -- adopted by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Deval Patrick last year -- will require all diesel and home-heating oil sold in the state to contain some biofuel.
