Making Biodiesel : Explained By MUM Students


This video was created in a hands on project class where students learned how to make bio-diesel, and work on innovating the production process.

First you will learn about the Titration test. Then you will learn all of the steps involved for the process.
Step 1: The first filtration and heating.
Step 2: Transesterification and..
Step 3: Washing and Drying.

Students currently are building a bio-diesel lab that is off the grid in three ways.

1) Electricity for lighting and bio-diesel production is produced by renewable energy
2) Solar hot water for the titration process..
3) Water catchment for the bio-diesel washing cycle

The bio-diesel lab is an on going project that is student driven and student operated since 2006 here at the Maharishi University of Management.
