Missouri researchers develop modular biodiesel production facility

October 4, 2017 |

In Missouri, researchers at the Missouri University of Science and Technology have developed a small, modular skid-mounted biodiesel production facility ideal for smaller communities and towns to recycle used cooking oil. The system uses a supercritical process that eliminates salt, allowing it to concentrate the glycerin/water mixture and significantly reduce the amount of glycerin produced in the process. It can also recycle the methanol, reducing the amount of inputs required. The work is funded by the National Science Foundation.
