Who’s making biodiesel?

By johnboy - 28 March 2007 26

The following turned up in the FAQ comments today, I thought it deserved a wider read:


I’m an ABC reporter looking for people in Canberra who make Biodiesel in their backyards. I would to interview them about how they do it.

Someone called “r5e” posted a comment on your website stating they do this. Is their any way you could contact this user on my behalf & ask them to contact me?

Warm regards


Anyone got any experience they want to share? Email it in if you’re unwilling to commit it to a comment and I shall pass it on.

What’s Your opinion?

I’ve happened to read about it on some 4WD forums, I’ve never done it myself.

The oil is waste and would otherwise be thrown away, so I guess they think they’re recycling or saving land fill or something.

Apparently in the long term, growing canola, or whatever the oil is, is a cheap and renewable alternative to fossil fuels.

So it would seem.

VY, that’s rarely the point of any of these “green” ideas.

They are generally all about boosting the smugness quotient.

Is it really any better for the environment?

I get the impression that those who make their own mainly do it for the environment, the cost saving is a bit of extra.

Yeah VYberlina, the thought of making a slight error and ending up with 20 or 30 litres of fish n chip scented soap is just not worth thinking about.
