Make Biodiesel while you sleep
Sustainable Living students at Maharishi University created a biodiesel processor.
A walkthrough of the steps required to make biodiesel at home and start driving your car for 65 cents / gallon!
First car powered by algal biodiesel to demonstrate real-world driving at Sundance
Solazyme, Inc., a synthetic biology company unleashing the power of aquatic microbes to create clean and scalable solutions for biofuel, industrial chemical, and health and wellness markets, today revealed the first ever algae-derived biodiesel fuel (Soladiesel™) to have undergone road testing by successfully powering a factory-standard automobile for long distances under typical driving conditions. The car and fuel will make their public debuts at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, where they are also featured in Fields of Fuel, Josh Tickell's documentary about renewable fuels. Soladiesel biodiesel is clean, renewable, environmentally sustainable and scalable.
How to make a biodiesel from animal fat?
My BMW 525 TDS loves it... i love 1/10 of costs... :o)
Very good and very cheap fuel, for diesel engines.
Fumes smell like a doughnuts :o)
Power sleeping in pigs !!!
How to call such a car? Pigwagen? :D

The most abundant element in our universe is Hydrogen Atoms have a rather peculiar behaviour they love to be shared They join forming ... todos » molecules, exchanging their electrons Each atom remains complete for a short period of time, this relation seems to make them happy.
The energy generated by fuels is usually a reaction between Hydrogen and Oxygen. Carbon plays an important role, since it's the natural container of Hydrogen If we add Hydrogen to the carbon we get a fuel: wood adding more Hydrogen, we get a paraffin or oil \"Biodiesel\" adding an alcohol \"Petrol\" and adding a methane gas \" Natural gas \"
What we need to get a fuel is: Hydrogen and Carbon
Hydrogen can be found abundantly in compounds like water but a lot of energy is needed to divide it from the Oxygen \"let's allow others make this work'
Bacteria usually carry out this process If we pay attention in pools or in rivers's backwaters we will see a thin oil's layer, which is produced by bacteria on having extracted the hydrogen
what we we need to our experient is: Water and Carbon \"organic residues are free and contain a lot of Carbon \"
Hydrogen and Carbon
we crush the rubbish with a mixer then we add water Once we get an homogeneous mass, we add bacteria, in order to extract the Hydrogen from the water, this one remains mixed with its own carbon
We beat all again and we let work the bacteria for a few days After this, we get an oil's layer that we can extract for decantation
In this process we also get methane, that we can store after having extracted the paraffin, we can distil the mixture getting a methanol
Finally we let the rest of carbon dry off, being able to be used as charcoal
The CO2 expelled to the atmosphere, completes his cycle in 72 hours as it comes from vegetable material it is considered as neutral for the pollution's effects
\" The paraffin is filtered and mixed with lighter oils, which dissolve impurities \"
We have carried out a few changes in our vehicle Mainly the change of the pipe that gives the fuel from the tank, since this one is denser
we have also changed the injectors for some one bigger With an adjustment of the carburation, the car will be ready to use the new biodiesel
Our car doesn't know if the fuel comes from organic wastes or from a splendid maize or sunflower's seeds
It takes one year that a maize's crop or sunflower's crop grow it needs a lot of space and and a lot of care. however a bacteria's crop is ready in few days.
OLD GIANTS ARE AFRAID OF CHANGE energy is decentralized and nowadays many people get their own energy, showing us how will be the future The global network \"Internet\" has changed the way people interact with information Now, the change is coming to the energy industry
The T-CO ClearView™ tank is designed to optimize the viewing and analysis of each critical stage of processing, as in this example, Biodiesel and its by-products.
