Biodiesel From Waste Cooking Oil
Exhibit Code: SLA-105
Zone: Green Place
Location: Louise Slaughter Hall (SLA/078) - Bay 2
Time: All Day
This exhibit demonstrates the process for converting waste cooking oil into biodiesel fuel. Waste oil is combined with methanol and other chemicals to produce biodiesel that can be used in vehicles or power equipment such as lawnmowers. Samples of the raw oil, finished biodiesel product, and soap produced from the glycerin byproduct will be displayed. This waste-to-energy process results in significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions while making valuable products from materials that would otherwise be landfilled.
