Semi Trailer Biodiesel Processor In Oregon
Semi Trailer Biodiesel Processor
Check out this awesome Semi-Trailer Biodiesel Processing setup built by one of our awesome customers in Oregon!
He installed power & water and then installed everything needed to make high quality Biodiesel right inside the semi trailer. From oil drying tanks & processing tanks, to continuous wash tanks and a full sized testing lab, it's a sight to behold! And cooler yet, all the fuel he makes powers his fleet of tractors on his grass seed farm! How's that for awesome!
We've done a complete write up on this awesome Biodiesel processing setup including his ingenious method for disposing of the Biodiesel wash water! 
Flying A Cessna Airplane On Biodiesel
Biodiesel Powered Flight
One of our awesome customers, Ross McCurdy, recently flew a Cessna 182 airplane on a 500 mile flight powered with a blend of aviation rated Biodiesel! How cool is that? He flew from Rhode Island to North Carolina and then all the way back on the clean, renewable power of Biodiesel.
