This project utilized waste vegetable oil(WVO) from the campus dining hall facilities. The goal in mind was to produce 30 L of biodiesel through a transesterfication process that would be compatible with an array of internal combustion engines, including farming equipment, There were five broad steps: collection, filtration, heating & settling, titration, and calculation. As crude biodiesel was purified, glycerin was created as a by-product. Completed biodiesel was tested against ASTM D6751 standards.
