Biodiesel 201: Build Your Own Biodiesel Processor
With Jennifer Radtke

When: March 1 2009, 9am-5pm
Cost: $150
Location: The Green Building Exchange, South San Francisco -
Prerequisite: BD101

Manufactured biodiesel processors can cost anywhere from $1500 to $7000. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to build your own, small-scale (~40 gallon) biodiesel processor from start to finish using materials that cost less than $700!

The first five students who sign up will have the option to bring their materials to build a processor in class (contact us for more details). Or, if you prefer, learn by assisting someone else.

You’ll learn how to use and maintain a processor and test out a new processor by making a fresh batch of biodiesel fuel. More advanced topics in home brewing biodiesel will be covered as well, such as fuel procurement, quality testing and equipment compatibility.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll be well on your way to making your own affordable, cleaner-burning alternative to petroleum diesel!
