Bend-based IdaTech announced the availability of a new renewable fuel source made from bio-methanol.

The company, which sells back-up power fuel cells to telecommunications companies, is offering a new blend of bio-methanol and water that customers will be able to use to operate their IdaTech fuel cells.
