Course Number and Title

TSM/ABE 325: Biorenewable Systems

Instructor

Thomas Brumm

Description

Biodiesel production results in a large quantity of crude glycerol (glycerin) being produced. A large supply of crude glycerol with low demand has resulted in low prices (Figure 1). Crude glycerol is approximate $0.10/lband feedstock price $0.28/lb. Finding an efficient method for utilizing this readily available commodity is an intriguing opportunity for profit.
