Making Glycerin Soap from Biodiesel By-products

Interesting post by Terry McGleish over at about turning your left-over glycerine into bars of soap. Note the mention of "Be sure not to breathe the fumes." during the soap making. That's going to be because of the likely hood of leftover Methanol (or Ethanol) in the material. If you are considering doing this - look around for more details on why this happens, including:

Green Oil Recyclers of Melbourne after used cooking oil

Florida Today Help columnist Dave Larimer discovers a Melbourne couple that have started Green Oil Recyclers and offer to pick up used cooking oil - presumably in the Brevard County FL area.

Scott and Lisa Stanley recently have started Green Oil Recyclers, a company that collects used cooking oil and sells it to larger firms to make biodiesel fuel and other products.

The good news is: they will accept small amounts of oil from consumers.

"Five gallons to a thousand gallons, quantities don't matter," Scott Stanley said.


He said he will pick up small portions of used oil from residences if homeowners call him at 321-403-1771.

He will not charge for the house call and at the same time, will not pay for the used oil.

The experiments study cell cultures such as these: Cell cultures

"We are curious to learn what genes will be activated. Maybe some of those genes could help us develop new plants," Wagner Vendrame, University of Florida associate professor of horticulture, said. "They will get a tremendous variation. We know we are going to see something. We just don't know what."
