dc.description.abstract Biodiesel has potential to reduce our dependence on petroleum, but is not widely used due to its high cost. Traditionally, biodiesel comes from virgin vegetable oil, but it is possible to convert waste cooking oil into biodiesel. Using waste cooking oil offsets the need for virgin crops and recycles what would be discarded. Applying the results of past senior design projects on the chemical reaction and separation process; we will package the entire system into an automated, usable prototype. Our focus is on producing a safe, clean, easy to operate system, and estimating its cost of mass production and distribution. en
