Turning recycled cooking oil into fuel?
Yogi and Environmental Dude Robb Miller explains how.
Biodiesel is a clean burning fuel made from natural, renewable resources such
as vegetable oil, soybean oils and recycled cooking oils
Biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable, nontoxic, and essentially free
of sulfur and aromatic compounds. Biodiesel use significantly reduces all
regulated emissions, including carbon monoxide and
particulate matter. Biodiesel production and use produces approximately 80%
less carbon dioxide emissions compared to petroleum diesel production and
use. Biodiesel is less toxic than table salt and as
biodegradable as sugar.
Biodiesel is truly pour-and-go technology - any diesel engine in any car,
truck, generator, school bus, mining operation, farm, fleet, rail, marine
and transit application can use a variety of biodiesel percentage
blends including neat biodiesel without major modifications.
to Source it?
I get mine from Dr. Dan in Seattle "www.fuelwerks.com).
Sometimes I make it in my garage using used vegetable oil from restaurants,
methanol and lye (sodium hydroxide) and a process called transesterfication
that produces biodiesel and glycerin - very FightClub. Beginning in January,
we will be importing it into Canada and distributing it commercially to fleets
and individuals anywhere in the lower mainland and the sea-to-sky
corridor. Check out www.ecofuels.ca to
order biodiesel for delivery or pickup.
I get hungry driving my car?
I seem to have an insatiable appetite for french fries. What kind of emissions
does it give off?
