Water Washing Biodiesel 101
Biodiesel Pictures Online
While dry washing Biodiesel is starting to gain popularity, water washing is still king. So, being that it's such a popular method for cleansing reacted Biodiesel, it's about time we did an article on how to water wash Biodiesel to ensure you have properly washed all the contaminants out of the Biodiesel.

Why It's So Popular & How It Works
Water really likes to dissolve whatever it comes in contact with. That includes soap, methanol, glycerin, and other contaminants commonly found in freshly reacted Biodiesel. When done properly, it can cleanse the Biodiesel extremely well. Here's why...

It Removes Methanol Like No Other
Methanol likes bonding to water much more than it likes bonding with oils, such as Biodiesel. So, when water is introduced, the methanol latches on to it like crazy and as the water falls through the Biodiesel (because water & oil don't really mix all that well), the water pulls the methanol right along with it. Not even ion exchange towers are this good at removing methanol!

It Dissolves Soap Extremely Well
Whenever we shower or wash our hands, we use soap. One of the reasons for this is because the soap likes to bond with the water and come along for the ride. In the case of washing our hands, the soap also pulls oils right along with it and removes the oil & grit from our hands. This is the same with Biodiesel. As we gently mist a spray of water over the reacted fuel, the soap will bind to the water molecules and fall out of the Biodiesel much more readily than just settling alone. Soap is kind of tricky though in that it also is an excellent emulsifier and if the water is sprayed too hard, we can create emulsions in the Biodiesel...more on that issue later.

It Removes Additional Contaminants
Glycerin, excess catalyst, dirt, grime, flour particles, and anything else that's left over from the oil getting reacted into Biodiesel doesn't stand a chance when water is used as a means to cleanse the fuel. This is again due to waters great ability to dissolve things and then pull them along for the ride as it falls to the bottom of the tank.

Dry wash resins, powders, wood chips, vacuum pumps, or other means of cleansing Biodiesel just can't hold a candle to the all encompassing power of good old water. While dry washing techniques have their place, they often have to be combined with several other technologies to completely cleanse the fuel as well as water does. Can you see where this is going?

So, here's some tips on how to use water to cleanse your Biodiesel squeaky clean.

Tips & Tricks For Successful Water Washing
1) Before you attempt to water wash, be sure your fuel is reacted
- Well reacted Biodiesel just washes better. It's because there's less oil and more Biodiesel in the mix and Biodiesel washes better than oil will.
- To test the fuel, run a simple 3/27 Biodiesel Conversion Test.
Biodiesel Pictures OnlineThe example on the left shows a pass (left) and a failed test (right).

We stock a handy test kit for this exact purpose. Click here to see the kit

When re-reacting, a good rule of thumb is to use 30% of the original catalyst & methanol. Be sure to heat the fuel back up too before re-reacting. Reactions LOVE heat.

2) To Wash Biodiesel, You'll Use Approximately The Same Amount Of Water As The Fuel You Need To Wash
- For example, if you are washing 50 gallons of Biodiesel, expect to go through 50 gallons of water. How much exact water used will depend on how aggressive the water spraying is, how warm the Biodiesel is, how hot the water is, and how dirty the fuel is. All of these factors can influence the amount of water required to wash.

3) Don't Spray Too Aggressively At First. It's Bound To Make A Mess

The first wash is the one that you have to be the most careful with. Spray too aggressively and it's bound to emulsify the soap into a goopy mess. In general, if you have a manual mist-washing system, heat up the Biodiesel, turn on the misters, and then carefully watch the Biodiesel to makBiodiesel Emulsion Examplee sure an emulsion isn't starting to form (it'll look like a whitish yellow milk shake. It starts off looking kind of like skim milk and can develop into what looks like cottage cheese or mayonnaise.

Emulsion can be broken using salt water and can be prevented by adding a little vinegar to the water, but the best way to keep them from happening is by going fairly easy with the water on the first wash cycle. You'll notice that the first wash water will always seem to be the most cloudy and white. This is due to water working it's magic and removing the soap. Over time you'll discover just how hard you can spray with the first wash, but I always recommend going as easy as you can on the first wash cycle & get more aggressive with the spray on the subsequent washes.

4) In General, Do At Least 2-3 Mist Wash Cycles And Then Check Soap Levels
. Continue To Wash Until The Soap Is Completely Removed.
Biodiesel will vary in the amount of soap produced during the reactions. Typically, the higher the titration, the more soap is going to get produced. More soap means longer wash times to get it all out. But in general, usually 2-3 mist washes will get the majority of the soap out.

To check for soap, start off by doing what's called a "Shake-Em Up" test. Basically, fill a jar half-way full of the washed Biodiesel, then fill the rest of it with water. Cap it and then shake the living crap out of it. Then, let it settle for about 20-30 minutes. Return and check the clarity of the water on the bottom. If it's still hazy & cloudy, you still need to continue washing.
Adding Bio and WaterBiodiesel Pictures OnlineSettling Out More settling
If it's nice & clear, then you're almost there! The next step is to do a full-blown soap titration test on the Biodiesel to see if all the soaps are removed. This is done by using a Soap Testing Kit.

Soap Testing KitYou can make one of these up yourself by purchasing all the chemicals and equipment needed, or stop by our site and check out our handy Soap Testing Kit.

We have 2 YouTube videos on how this test can be performed.

Once all the soaps are removed from the Biodiesel, then it's time to start drying the fuel.

5) When Drying, Heat, Circulation, And Air Flow Are You're Friends
There are several ways to dry the washed Biodiesel. The most common being just plain old heat & time. Followed next by bubbling air through the fuel. However, one of the most effective ways to dry Biodiesel is by both heating AND circulating the fuel back on top of itself. Click here to see a really nice Biodiesel drying setup.

Adding a fan to blow across the top also will speed up the drying process as well.
Drying Setup

We stock a nozzle called a Dry Pro that is great for this type of application. Whether you use a nozzle like this, a shower head, or even just a hose with a bunch of holes punched through it draped over the top of your barrel, the goal is to spray the fuel back on top of itself to air it out. You can read more about this drying technique at the Collaborative Biodiesel Tutorial website. Click here to see the article

There are seveCleaned Biodieselral ways to check to see if it's finished drying, but the quickest test is by using the hot pan test. Click here to see a video of this test. Basically, heat up a pan, then drop in about 30 mL of Biodiesel. Then watch for bubbles or steam. If you don't see any, your fuel is dry!

When water washing Biodiesel properly, the end result can be extremely well cleaned Biodiesel that is ready to use!

So there you have it, our tips for water washing Biodiesel to get it nice & squeaky clean and dried! Go Bio!

Biodiesel Soap Making BookMaking Biodiesel Soaps Book
In addition to our Soap Making Kit, we're proud to announce the introduction of an additional Biodiesel glycerin soap making instruction manual. This book, called Making Biodiesel Soaps, was recently published by Rick Knicely of the Knice-N-Clean Soap Company. It contains over 80 pages of material that will teach you how to make high quality soaps that rival their store bought counter parts.

By using special soap making techniques, Rick introduces us to the use of additives that hand made soap makers have been utilizing for years to do such things as change the color, texture, hardness, fragrance, and other properties of the soap they make. By adopting several of these techniques, you can make some of the hardest bar soaps around or some of the smoothest silkiest gel soaps available.

Biodiesel Glycerin Soap, More Than Just For Cleaning....
Bar Soap
If you've been making Biodiesel for a while, or even if you haven't, you may have heard that some people are making soap out of their Biodiesel glycerin.

When people first discovered that you could make soap from Biodiesel glycerin, the soap that was made was usually really brown looking, kind of looked like....well, let's just say it didn't look all that great, and it didn't smell all that good either. If you made bar soap, the bars were usually squishy and slimy looking. In other words, yeah, it was soap, but most people, and especially women (my wife included), wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole! "Ew! Is that supposed to be soap? Get that out of my house this instant!"

Some people could get used to the look, feel, and smell of the stuff while others just completely abandoned it all together. But still others out there being ingenious and curious, decided there had to be a better way to turn the glycerin into soap that rivaled commercially produced soap.

One of these individuals is Rick Knicely from Michigan. Over the last few years Rick has been working on making better soap out of his Biodiesel glycerin that don't turn out to be the "gooey, brown, nasty soap bars". Through lots of research into traditional and commercial soap making, Rick discovered that it's possible to make bar soap from Biodiesel glycerin that resembled the stuff you could get in the store. You know, nice, hard bars that didn't feel all gooey & nasty that lasted a long time under heavy use.
Soap Soaps

He also discovered that he could color the soap too! From pink to green to tan to red, he discovered that with a little work, virtually any color was possible. He found that he could do the same with liquid soaps made from Biodiesel glycerin as well. As he did his research he took meticulous notes on all his findings and has recently published a book called Making Biodiesel Soaps.

A few months ago I started visiting with Rick and was amazed by how well his soaps turned out. They were of extremely high quality, felt much like high quality soaps you'd buy in the store (nice & hard), didn't "sweat", lathered extremely well, and lasted much longer than any previous Biodiesel glycerin soap bars I had ever tried. Needless to say, I was hooked and still am.

Biodiesel Pictures OnlineSo what's the "More Than Just For Cleaning..." part? Well, the other day I had someone stop by to talk about making Biodiesel and I showed him a bar of soap that I'd made using Ricks newly released Basic Biodiesel Glycerin Soaps kit (I've been one of the beta testers for the kit). The guy was amazed at the soap and the conversation that ensued went something like this.... "Do you realize what you have here?" "Yeah, soap!" "No, you have a green product that you could easily market in boutique's and craft stores for about $3-$5 a bar!" "Yeah?" "Yeah! People LOVE this kind of stuff!" "Well, I know it works really good too..." and I went on to tell him some of my success stories of how well it removes stains, cleans clothes, pulled baby butt cream out of my daughters hair, etc....

By that time I could see the numbers going through his head..."How much glycerin did you use to make these bars?" "Well, about a gallon of glycerin made all 40 bars"...."Let's see...40 x $3 is $120. How much glycerin does a 50 gallon batch make?" "About 10-12 gallons" "OK, 10 gallons times $120 is $1200. How much does the soap cost to make?" "Well, roughly about .10-.20 cents a bar, depending on how you make it". "Even if you sold these for $3.00 a bar and assumed $0.20/bar for cost, that's over 90% profit!" And that's when the light went on inside my head and I've been excited ever since that day about the prospect of soap from Biodiesel glycerin.

I'd then remembered that there were several people I'd heard of that were making and selling their soap they'd made on a regular basis and doing quite well. In other words folks, we're all sitting on a gold mine! That big old drum of glycerin you have sitting in the back yard is possibly worth up to $120/gallon in the form of potential soap sales! Our biggest problem with it is that most people haven't liked the kind of soap it produces, but now with the new methods that Rick has been pumping out, it can gain a much wider appeal! In other words, we now have the knowledge to make soap that rivals the best out there. In color, texture, effectiveness, longevity, and smell!

In the case of Tim from Utah (the guy I've been experimenting making soap with), once people get their hands on a couple bars of his soap, they just have to have more! They love the stuff! Even if you didn't sell the bars for $3.00/bar, you'd still come out on top! It's a built in revenue generator....and we used to throw this stuff away! Tim now keeps every drop of glycerin we make and turns it into soap. He's made well over 800 bars of the stuff and people just can't seem to get enough of it!

To help people get started making soap, we now carry a Basic Soap Making Kit that comes with everything you'll need to make 40-50 bars of soap. You just heat up the demethylated glycerin in a pot, mix the included Lye with some distilled water, pour in the included fatty acids, mix it all together and pour it into a soap mold that you can make using the box that comes with the kit.

I think it's a great way to introduce yourself or others to making soap from Biodiesel glycerin. Once you've made a few bars and tried it, I'm sure you'll want to make more (I know I did!). From there you can learn the basics of soap making from Glycerin by picking up a copy of one of our two soap making publications. We've already told you about Rick's great book. Now with Rick's book on how to take it to the next level, we believe that making soap from Biodiesel glycerin has finally come of age.

We now have the ability to make really high quality soap that appeals to nearly everyone, color and fragrance the soap, and then package and market the soap in a way that's bound to catch on! We can't think of a better way to get rid of the glycerin that used to be considered a nuisance!

Because I'm so excited about the prospect of making & selling soap from Biodiesel glycerin, I've started work on sourcing supplies and equipment to make the soap with. Things like molds, bar cutters, pH meters, and a whole host of products will soon be making their way to our site to help support you as you begin to make soap. We're in the middle of testing a wide range of products to make sure they live up to the Utah Biodiesel Supply standard before releasing them, but be sure to stop by as we'll start releasing them soon. If any soap makers out there have idea's for things we should look at, be sure to send them in. Our best products always have come from customer suggestions and I'm sure soap making will be the same. Happy Soaping!!!
Engine Biodiesel Compatibility (DPF Updates)
Fords New Engine
With the new 2010 Chevy Duramax coming out with a new engine that could handle up to 20% blends of Biodiesel (Read: It'll handle B100 just fine...), others were soon to follow.

The latest news is that Ford, now out of a contractual relationship with International Harvester, is free to make their own diesel engines.

The newest diesel engine to come out of this is the all new Ford 6.7 Liter Powerstroke Diesel. This is an all new design from ground up with brand new cutting edge technology that's claimed to do amazing things (time will tell how well the marketing hype really is).

One bonus of developing the engine in-house is that Ford was able to build an engine that can ALSO run on B20! (can't be beat by Chevy, now can we...).

Details of this exciting new engine can be found in this article I stumbled on (Click here to see the article). No specifics are given on how it's managing the DPF cleaning system except that they claim it's now compliant with B20. My guess is that they've eliminated the deadly spray of unburned fuel into the combustion area (known as post-injection) and probably moved it into the exhaust manifold or just outside the turbo. Who knows? But, they are claiming that the engine is compliant with B20, so it's possible it will be able to handle B100 as well.

I don't have any friends "on the inside" at Ford like I do at GM, but if Ford wants to compete with the new B20 compliant Duramax engine, chances are this new power plant will have no problem eating all the B100 you can feed it. Here's hoping anyway....

I haven't heard any news out of Dodge yet on the Cummins being B20 compliant, but I did read in Diesel Power Magazine that Chrysler has allowed their contract with Cummins to expire. With FIAT now at the helm of Dodge, there's been no word yet on what might happen with the Dodge/Cummins partnership. If Cummins does stay with Dodge, I'd be willing to bet that by the end of the year we'll see a B20 compliant Cummins engine announced as well. 

Keep an eye on Diesel Power Magazine for updates or keep reading our newsletters as I'll be doing another engine update in our next issue. Until then, keep on burning the bio!
