Student-run biodiesel facility

Submitted by David Tierney


A small group of students and faculty are in the process of designing and funding Kansas State's first small scale biodiesel production facility. The intention is for the facility to be operated and managed mostly by K-State students to convert used cooking oil from campus dining halls and local restaurants into usable biodiesel to be utilized on campus and in the community in the future.

We're currently looking for individuals who are interested in promoting sustainability on and off campus by producing a fuel from waste, saving the school money and promoting biodiesel and its benefits. We're hoping to have a meeting before school breaks for the holidays, so please email kstate.biodiesel@gmail.com to inform us of your interest and to receive future emails and information from us.
