Well over the past year I have found out that methanol is the biggest cost of making fuel..

So I'm looking for idea's on what and how to build a Methanol Recovery system.

one to lower the cost of production

and two to use the glycerin to make some soap or make it easier to dispose of..

so Please throw out some idea's...

btw with my plant I'm getting about 20 gallons of glycerin every time I make a batch..

110 gallon processor

Still working on getting my setup, so I'm not very knowledgeable really...
I've made a M-distiller per graham laming . He's in the UK so their metric sizes can be converted. Such as, using 1/2" and 3/4". Depending on ambient conditions, I think this might need a PVC sleeve, to be ice-filled. Or filled with very-slow-flowing cold water ( which can be recycled for washing, etc...) In any case, he seems to be a serious expert in this area, among others. Check it. I'm in Aurora. Meet up sometime ?
