Calling all Irish based members or guests
I am looking to start making Biodiesel in Ireland
has anyone any experiences good / bad to share
I'm also based around Wicklow and interested in biofuel - havent done anything in the way of mixing batches as yet
Dia dhuit is conas a ta tu? Bhi me i mo chonai i gContae na hIar Mhi ar feadh deich mbliana.
Ach nil aon eolas agam faoi biodiesel in Eire.
Go mo leith sceal.
Táim thar barr,
Feicim go bhfuil tú i Lancashire anois - ní raibh fhios agamsa mar gheall ar biodiesel in Éire freisin. Is doigh go mbeidh níos mo suimuilt i gceann tamaillín i biofuel sa tír seo os rud e go bhfuil carbon taxes agus a leithead ag teacht. Is innealtoir cairte me fhéin agus bheach mé ag smaoineamh níos mó ar an deireadh-úsaid don biofuel.
Dia daoibh go léir! Is as Bré i gCondae Cill Mhantáin mé, ach tá cónaí orm i gCondae Aontroma anois. Tá thart faoi 30000 mílte tiomáinte agam ar an "díosal glasra" go dtí seo. Ní dhéanaim féin é, faighim ó Terry UK i mBéal Féirste é. Beidh mise i gCill Mhantáin am éigin i rith an tsamhraidh, cónaíonn mo thuismitheoirí in Áth na Fuiseoige. B'fhéidir go dtiocfadh linn bualadh le chéile.
Out of consideration for other forum users, a quick translation is that HCR lived in Co. Westmeath for ten years (are you a fellow paddy then, or a Sasanach who picked up the lingo?), but regrets that he hasn't any information about biodiesel in Ireland.
EcoEire doesn't know too much about the biodiesel situation in Ireland, but reckons there'll be more interest in biofuels soon because of impending carbon taxes. He's an engineer and is interested in the end-use(?) of biofuel.
Then I've added that I'm from Co. Wicklow originally & have covered about 30000 miles on biodiesel (which I get from Terry UK) by now. I've suggested that when I'm down there during the summer, we might meet up.
At least, that's what I've told you all!
Is maith liom e!
Ta mo mhaithir in a conai i Muillte Farranain agus b'fheidir go mbeidh mise is an bean ag dul ar ais aris samhradh seo chugainn.
An bhfeicfidh me thu?
What sort of prices are you guys paying in Eire for Supplies
I have been offered NaOH at 1 euro per Kg (inc Vat)
and Methanol at about 60 cent a liter (inc Vat)
are these good prices or has anyone a better source
Maybe we should organise a Irish meet to discuss BIO-diesel
Gabh mo leithscéal, ach ní aithním ainm na háite sin Muillte Farranain. Cónaíonn mo thuismitheoirí féin in Áth na Fuiseoige, measartha cóngarach do Chill Mhantáin, agus is dócha go mbeidh mé ag bualadh isteach chucu thart faoi mí Iúil, mar gheall ar an chraic mhór a tharlaíonn sa cheantar seo ag an am sin (an 12ú lá!). Má tá tú thart ag an am sin, thiocfadh linn bualadh le chéile go cinnte! D'fhás mise aníos i mBré, ach tá an áit sin íontach athraithe ó d'fhág mé é trí bliana déag ó shin.
Don101 - is airgead maith a bfhuil agat. Chaithim £1.00/litre agus ~£2.00/500g.
Andymc - Muilte Faranain is 8 milte o Muileann gCearr. Nilim cinnte cen mi go bheidh me in Eire - Iúil no Meán Fómhair da mbeach an airgead agam!
Is fiche bliana o an am seo chaite a bhi me ag sriobh as Gaeilge - gabh mo lithsceal ma deanaim a lan dermaid!
No wonder I didn't recognise it. Ironic, considering my brother spent some time at agricultural college there.
Ná bí buartha faoi do chuid Gaeilge - bhéinn iontach bródúil dá dtiocfadh liom focal ar bith a scríobh i ndiaidh fiche bliana!
I used to live across the road from the Friary/college and catch trout in the Gaine - the small river which runs through it.
It is nice to use a bit of Irish again. I think it is a beautiful languageand I don't want to lose it. I don't really get a lot of chance to use it these days.
By the way, those ag students were all a bunch of p*ssheads! Which years did he study there?
Can't remember exactly, but it would have been around 1986-87 or so. He had to quit the ag science because of developing a severe case of farmer's lung, then chopped & changed studies a few times & tried a couple of years at computer programming before finally settling on Psychology. He's now a behavioural consultant!
Actually, it was partly down to his studies at ag college that I first became aware of alternative fuel as a young teenager. He did a project based around the Portglenone Monastery system of using methane from animal effluent for fuel. He also spent time at Warrenstown. I can't remember if it was there or Multyfarnham that operated/introduced a similar system while he was there. I remember being fascinated by the concept, really pleased even at age 14 that we didn't have to rely on fossil fuel for energy.
Ah, memories ...
Fiche blian - maith an fear!! - Nior usáid me morán gaelige ó d'fhag me an meanscoil i 1988
Tá mise i mo chonaí cupla míle taobh amuigh de Bhré ar an mbóthar go dti na Clocha Liath.
I would be interested in meeting. As I have mentioned earlier, I am a chartered engineer working in the building industry. My interest comes from studies I undertook for a holiday home venture approx two years ago where the client was looking at sustainability as a market. I did some explorative work on the viability of an anerobic digester for this facility. Seemed to stack up quite well given the location of his site - (Cavan district) - Project did not proceed however for various reasons.
Anyhow, getting back to the point, I am hoping to purchase a diesel vehicle (funds permitting!!) which I can convert to biodiesel in the near future - and thats how I found this forum - I was also thinking of the bigger picture -
If you are planning to meet up I would be interested.

Talk about 'English as a foreign language'
Nice to see that some members are keeping up the old traditions, even if I don't understand a word of it. And I suspect that Babelfish won't touch this with a long pole.
Now, about United Europe...
Agreed, I am all in favour of retaining ones own language. I believe that it is a good thing to have english as a common language to enable most people to communicate. (Russian, Spanish and French seem to be the other local favourites. Babelfish is a great help here) A sort of lingua franca (HCR, is that correct ?) but also it is important to be able to speak a few words of the local language of any country you visit. Even simple things like greetings and 'please, thank you' do make all the difference in helping you fit in.
Having travelled about a bit I have these in perhaps eight languages. But I still have to be carefull with Kalimera and calamari when on holiday in Greece.
