...or anywhere in the Maritimes.

I'm a chem. eng. currently residing in Halifax and working all over (doing air quality stuff). I'm very interested in starting some biodiesel experiments, perhaps offsetting the fuel used in my furnace in the leaky house I'm renting.

Anyone else on the east coast?

Cheerios,
Peter.

Peter and wolf:

A pleasure to make your acquaintance.
I am only at tester of small one liter a batch to date, located outside Moncton.
I will be working up to <3000 liters a year, with in the next quarter.
My name is Roger, and I look forward to continued communications.
Peter, I am looking at a biodiesel co-generation for my home as well as my personal vehicle.
Wolf, good luck, and remember what Mr. Churchill said. Never, never, never give up!
And I thought all Maritimer’s enjoyed a head on a brew?LOL
Persistence is omnipotent.

Peter and wolf et all:

My small one-liter batches have been completed utilizing the now World Famous Dr Pepper Technique (Pat Pend).

Sorry Tilly. Red Face

Just remember, after you produce 53,654 litres of biodiesel in one calendar year using the World Famous Dr Pepper Technique (Pat Pend) royalties are due. Just make payment to "Tilly From Paradise" care of your favourite numbered Swiss Ban Account.

Gentlemen please check your “Mypop” for private chat.

Thanks.

Too all others, the message just contains my personal contact information, boring stuff, you know. Please accept my apologies for my inadequacy in forum decorum.

Hello Jetboatguy:

Do you run the reversing falls too?? That looks like fun.

Welcome aboard, I am a NFG myself. I’m in the development stage of my processor project. I have read in other post in this forum about home heating with BD. Maybe try a search, using those terms.

What a concept BD production in the same city as the largest oil refinery on the East Coast of North America. Too cool!!

Hey Raveman,

I am not the authentic jetboatguy, although we share the same french name 'Marc Gosselin' ...the real jetboatguy hasn't published his phone number in the phone book Confused ... and I happen to live a stones throw away (asssuming that you have really good arm) from the Reversing Falls. So to make a long story short...I get his phone calls all the time! So I might as well let him know in a suttle way that he should get his phone number published. Thinking outside the box is lonely, but jake palmer put me onto this site, so there's at least two of us from Saint John on this forum. I'd love to see your technique for biodiesel procedures some day soon. I'm really green in this area, but very much interested...

Well Marc I once shared a common number with an Escort service. 855 - 854 was the difference, and at 2:30 A.M. most inebriated individuals don’t notice the difference. I received a lot of calls, Man dear they make a lot of money.

As I stated before i am actually only in the production stage of my processor. Full production should be in less than two weeks. By all means we will share a brew and tales. I look forward to it.

Drunk men calling you at 2:30 in the morning... that sucks.

my email is goss@techie.com , so let me know when you are brewing next in Moncton, afterall it's only a 2 hour drive to Moncton... If I went at it on my own, I'd end up making soap like WOLF in St-Stephens... best of luck to him as well.

I'd consider doing a set-up in SJ, but I need an idea and education first.


I have an oil furnace with tanks inside...which eliminates gell factor on cold days. So the question is, can this stuff heat homes in east Canada ?

Jetboat:

Haven't made any great quantities but the bio-diesel I have made using Mr. Tillman's fine method has run my home and two water heaters for up to 24 hours at a time with no noticeable problems.

If it can burn #2 it will burn bio-diesel.

100% bio...?


Sorry, but I'm new here and I've already noticed alot of skepticism amongst some in these forums... it's kinda hard to nail down what's what in here... Wolf from St-Stephens NB says that he managed to burn at a certain percentage only, but I'm sure he's stilll perfecting his brew...

Tillman's brew...? Is this common knowledge?

jetboatguy:

The method I was referring to is (drum roll please)the World Famous Dr Pepper Technique (Pat Pend). Excellent way to get started and to make modest amounts of the golden fire water.

While a search under Dr. Pepper will net you 246+ hits, at least one will give you a step by step. Do not forget to credit the great one for his efforts.

Hope this helps.

Hello everyone. I'm from Truro,NS - and glad to see the NS biodiesel community growing. I have been researching and producing up to 200L batches of biodiesel for a couple of years using wvo. Does anyone in NS produce it commercially (besides Wilson's Fuel)?

As far as I am concerned ...making biodiesel is a waste of time and money considering it can be burnt as veggie oil once filtered properly. You can burn up to 80% in your car and up to 50% in your furnace with proper adjustments.
