Biodiesel Production

IDS 01

    This course will provide students with a working knowledge of biodiesel production, including basic organic chemistry, safety considerations, logistics, and economics, through the weekly processing of high grade biodiesel from waste vegetable oil. The course will include weekly discussions concerning alternative fuels and environmental issues. A time commitment of 5 hours a week is required, but scheduling is flexible.
