Institutions can make biodiesel easily with BioPro biodiesel processing equipment
Biodiesel is the most thoroughly tested alternative transportation fuel in the US. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that biodiesel emits 78.5% less CO2 per gallon than diesel, and, just as important, significantly reduces the particulate matter in the exhaust. It is also an increasingly well known fact that if you use ASTM-grade biodiesel fuel in your vehicle, it will extend the life of your car.
What isn’t well known: if you make biodiesel yourself, in a BioPro biodiesel processor, you can make it remarkably easily for a cost of 85 cents per gallon (assuming August 2017 commodity prices and a free source of veg/animal-based oil). If you believe, as we do, that it is only a matter of time before the price of diesel climbs again, you will be impressed with your ability to sidestep diesel altogether with the BioPro biodiesel processor. Payback is fast. We estimate it will take you approximately 6 to 8 months, assuming you operate your machine at 2/3rds capacity and diesel #2 costs $3/gal.

Above, we have offered up several categories that you might fit into (This is by no means exhaustive.). We’ve tried to spell out biodiesel production for you specifically, and have included case studies and industry specific data.
