Hello there! My name is Nathan. I’m 17, a senior in high school, and I make biodiesel.
About a year and a half ago, January of ’07, I was talking to a friend who had just opened a coffee shop and was looking to “go green”. He was talking about biodiesel, and how expensive it was at the time ($3.75!) and how he wished he could afford it. I told him he could make his own for a lot less than that, he told me no he couldn’t, I told him he could, and he told me to go figure it out. So, a little over a year later, with many many hours of reading, research, and talking to folks at the university, I was making it. For less than a dollar a gallon.
This blog is for me to share, document, and talk about things I’ve learned.
Feedback is more than welcome!
