What to do with 300g a Week of Glycerin?

Hey guys,

So we're running into a wall here, we're currently producing around 300 gallons a week of glycerin, but we have no outlet. And that's a heck of a lot of soap bars, heh.

We'd be looking to give it away for free. Does anyone know of a company that would take this away, with meth, or without meth? We're in Northeast PA.


Any help would be really appreciated.

Try checking out your local water treatment fascility. If they use a digester then the glyc with methanol is actually beneficial to the bacteria (they feed off it) and they get better results. I don't kow what kind of volume they can use, but some is better than none eh?

Look for a large dairy farm. You can find them easily if your down wind!
They will have a huge manure lagoon. Your totes of glycerin will be a spec in the pond of poop.
That's where ours goes.

What type of glycerin? From what feedstock and what caustic?

Hello BobAbbey,
Can you explain why the manure lagoon would benefit from the glycerin input? Clearly there is some benefit to the farmer but I guess I'm not sure what that is.

I didn't claim that the manure lagoon would benefit from the glycerin. I do know it is biodegradable, and we use KOH as a catalyst, which is good fertilizer when broken down.

Since it is mainly carbon, your byproduct affects the carbon/nitrogen ratio. If it helps, this is probably why. Both aerobic and anerobic bacteria work best close to set ratios of C/N. As I understand, at least. Others have a deeper understanding I am sure.

HTH.

I have read that cement and/or asphalt plants use burners that might handle glycerol. I'd like to hear from anyone who has first hand knowledge of that. I am able to use all my glycerol in sawdust logs that I burn in my woodstove. Your 300 gallons per week would be a bit much to go that road.

I contacted a local cement place awhile back, they would take it but it had to be liquid.

So for my demethed NaOH it was a no-go. But you might find it different in your area. I think they use it to fire their kiln.

Hey DGF!

Please contact me about your glycerin. I will pick it up if it isn't an unreasonable distance. I will use it in my clycerin burner, and return the totes to you to refill!

Hey Swamp Rat!

New Orleans might be fun, but it's a bit distant from New London, Ohio.

I wonder how much glycerin the airlines will let you carry?

I am not sure but , I have at least 8 totes of glyserol. new orleans is full of young ethnecly challenged thugs looking to mug some one. I live out in the country. about 30 miles from new orleans. I have to go to new orleans to work some times. the only advice I have is any one wanting to go there is bring a very dependable pistol and xtra clips of ammo. I have a 15 shot ruger 9mm and I keep a ak-47 in the truck. there a few places down there wanting me to pick up oil, but it is just to dangerous and I really don't wana have to shoot some thug, because I am trass passing in his gang turf. there is no fun in new orleans these days just daily murders,car jacking and robberys.
