Mathias Venditto has discovered how to power his Florida home by recycling waste vegetable oil, and turning it into bio-diesel. Waste vegetable oil is considered biodegradable. While on the campaign trail for the 2010 Florida State Elections, Mathias ran for the District 1 House seat, and often stumped for converting Florida's waste cooking oil into power for schools, and fuel for municipalities. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection arrested Mathias at his home on November 17, 2010 for "willfully" polluting a commercial-sized load of "petroleum constituents"
