Growing Biodiesel: A Couple of Tips

Friday, November 8, 2013

Roger Rainville’s biodiesel production system didn’t come out of an instruction manual or textbook. As he describes in Energy Independence: On-Farm Biodiesel Fuel Production, it was developed over time through experimentation and creative problem solving. In this short video, Rainville describes his philosophy for trying something new on your farm. It’s all about making the most of the learning curve.

Diane Hildebrandt is from a program called COMPS from the University of Johannesburg, South Africa.  They see their mission as training post-graduates from all over Africa to find new innovations for the world.  South Africa currently has virtually no biofuel industry but they are looking at their options.  South Africa is very dry, has a large portion of the population living in poverty and many areas have insufficient food supplies so they must balance these problems with their research in biofuels.  The University of South Africa’s main research areas are; Process Synthesis, How to Design Processes and Equipment that are Energy Efficient, and to Reassess Design Processes to Reduce CO2 Emissions.  They currently have two pilot projects to test these research areas.  Ms. Hildebrandt gives a concise overview of the basic physics of potential and kinetic energy and how it relates to all types of energy production.
