The Dreamer Propulsion Project is offering by-donation workshops in homebrew biodiesel production. If you are willing to host a workshop in your home, office, community centre or any other venue, we are willing to travel to your community (limited to Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands) to share what we know.
What we offer is a 90 minute presentation that covers:
-basics of transesterification (biodiesel production)
-how to make your own backyard biodiesel refinery with off-the-shelf hardware parts for less than $500
-how to start a biodiesel co-op with friends and neighbours to share costs and effort
-how to convert your diesel vehicle to run on straight vegetable oil
-the future of biodiesel; alternate ingredients and processes
This lecture is offered in easy to understand language. You need not be a mechanic, engineer, or chemist.
Ideally we like to present to 5 or more people and pass the hat to cover travel costs. This is simple oral presentation that can also be offered as a demonstration if you are able to supply used, dewatered and filtered vegetable oil, methanol and lye. (Contact us for more details on where to find these things)
