The manual will always be free,
but donations are most welcome.
Need some good karma?
Hardcopy Option COMING SOON
My manual is open source and costs nothing to download. However, I will soon make an abridged printed version available for those of you who prefer to read paper and/or have a hardcopy handy for reference. Revenue generated from distribution of the hardcopy will be used to cover printing costs and maintain the website.
Timelapse of Vegetable Oil Transesterification
This is a 15-second timelapse video of what the biodiesel-rendering process looks like when observed in a masonry jar. This sample was removed from my processor; it contains waste vegetable oil, methanol, and sodium hydroxide. The solution is heated, mixed, and allowed to settle. The clear layer that materializes at the top is unwashed biodiesel. The dark layer on the bottom is gylcerin and can be used to make soap
As an alternative to making a donation, please consider purchasing a "Grease for Peace" bumper sticker. This will help pay for hosting.
Thanks for visiting!
