A California-based energy company has designed a mobile biodiesel production plant, able to make 2,000 to 3,000 gallons of the green fuel a week while fitting in the back of a 8 foot by 45 foot by 9.5 foot trailer.
This company press release says AM Oil Resources & Technology Inc. says the biodiesel refinery is just in the design stage right now, but it will soon become reality:
According to Anthony K. Miller, CEO, “The mobile biodiesel plant is to be self sufficient, adaptable to different grades of waste vegetable oil (WVO), environmentally friendly, and economical. Our initial goal is to produce fuel that can be used to operate our patent steam generators, oil field equipment and/or our vehicles. Biodiesel is typically blended with diesel for usage and any surplus we produce can be sold for a profit. We can sell the glycerin as a profit center as well.” Miller added, “Management and our consultants have extensive experience in this field, with involvement in one of the first stationary plants built in California. We are extremely excited by the promise this can hold for our Company.”
I couldn’t find a picture of the mobile biodiesel plant, but I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about it soon.
