We ran a small boiler for a greenhouse for 5 years on B100, half of which was on demethed and settled and the other half on settled only. Mind you it was settled for a week or so before use, so a lot of the residual glyc had dropped out, and what was left didn't seem to have any negative effect.
Some of the large commercial boilers can run KOH based glycerine with the methanol still in it without a hitch.
The higher the percentage of biodiesel the more you will have to adjust the fuel/air mix and perhaps chrome paint the inside of the gun so the CAD can recognize the flame.

I agree, a boiler will consume it. but don't put methanol laden fuel in your engine. And I must add,,, That is a very nice looking boiler system!

I have run a lot of home made and high power burners on Straight Veg.

As long as the glyc is only a small part of the over all fuel mix, it will go straight though just fine. There is a LOT of heat value in Glyc. You do just have to have a hot flame / environment to get it to burn but once it does, lot of energy to be had.
