Tonight Rich Reilly from BiodieselWarehouse and I made 3 batches of biodiesel from ethanol. Using our soon to be famous Bacardi Technique (no Patent Pending), we processed the following batches:
Batch 1 was from 200 proof ethanol and new soybean oil.
Batch 2 was from 180 proof ethanol and new soybean oil.
Batch 3 was from 200 proof ethanol and used fryer oil.
Batch 1 is separating nicely, batch 2 doesn’t seem to be processing, batch 3 is too early to tell. More tomorrow on the results and the methods used.
Pictures and dialogue will be posted on our wiki over the next few days.
That’s biodiesel above the 100 ml mark, glycerin below it.
