The Fuel Team is the information hub of the Greengineers program. We are responsible for the core research and knowledge of all things regarding biodiesel. Ask us questions--we'll get you answers!

What we're currently up to:

We are working on planning and building a methanol recovery system so we can:
  1. recycle our methanol
  2. make our glycerin byproduct usable (turn it into soap/compost?)
  3. make our practice overall more sustainable

We are almost ready to order parts for our Plumber's Delight condenser! We hope to make the frame out of black steel piping with a crimped inner tube of copper. We may also experiment with an air conditioner cooling system for methanol recovery from glycerin, with advice from the kind folks at Dickinson College. Stay tuned to hear more about our plumbing adventures....
