Biodiesel
1. Replacement for diesel fuel
2. Replacement for home heating fuel
3. Replacement for "Goo Off"
4. BBQ Cleaner
5. Rubber Eater
6. Tee-Kee Torch Fuel

Glycerin
1. Engine Degreaser
2. Source of Methanol (Methanol Recovery)
3. Floor Cleaner
4. Make Soap from it
5. Compost
6. Emulsion Breaker

OK, share the wealth...

Biodiesel

1. turbine start up fuel for ground running of engines.
2. first stage booster fuel for rocket engines. (not sure of the specific impulse generated but it would help with launch pollution).

Glycerin

1. de-methed and mixed with animal feed, I'm told that animals love the taste.
2. feed stock for a methane digester (this sounds like a good idea, I'll have to do more research on it to see if it helps or hinders methanogenesis).

Demethed glycerin

Earwig killer

I pulled a drip pan out from under my glycerin settling jug; I couldn't have squeezed another earwig into that shallow pool of glycerin if you paid me. One solid dead earwig/glycerin lump. Eeeeeeew! Razz

Biodiesel Glycerin can do wonders to break an emulsion.

I heard it will make hair grow back if you are bald...

Don't need it yet, but I hope it's true just in case!

It would make a good additive to a waterless hand cleaner; the kind they used to put petroleum distillates in, and put +/- limonene in now.

Biodiesel makes a lovely lubricant for use on a metal lathe. I never use K-1 any more. The smell is much more pleasant and it's FAR less toxic.

It's also not a bad substitute for WD-40, keeping in mind it may eat paint and/or plastic.

WVO makes a pretty decent wood preservative, though I only have a couple of test pieces that are two years old. The next test I want to set up is to soak the wood with bio and then paint/roll it with wvo, to get better penetration.

I also just rolled 50 2x10's prior to pouring a foundation. I'll let you know how wvo works as a mold release agent.

Finest regards,

troy

I would bet that biodiesel would make a good parts washer fluid. I haven't tried it (I NEED all my BD I make!), but I've used regular diesel in my parts washer in the past since, at that time, it was far cheaper than the typical "parts cleaner".

B100 is great for cleaning/lube on wrenches and hand tools. Especially adjustable and channel-lock types. But be careful if they have dipped handles, it's usually a type of plastisol and the bio eats it quickly. I have also used B100 and glycerine as a lube and coolant on a metal lathe and drill press.

As an indirect use if you spill some b100 on the concrete garage floor and then walk in with wet shoes later it makes for a wild first "skating" lesson!!!

Yeah; I have no plastic covers on any of my valve handles that are anywhere near the washing tank. That little bit of biodiesel mist builds up, the covers swell, and then they fall off.

Olive oil works better for that.
