Biodiesel Education at the University of Idaho

The University of Idaho supports biodiesel education through production and research of this alternative fuel. We conduct our studies in the JML Lab.

Campus Dining Services provides us with waste cooking oil from restaraunts in the Commons. We use the oil as feedstock in our 300 gallon reactor, and produce biodiesel to fuel campus vehicles.

We're able to run a 100 percent (B100) blend of biodiesel in our TDI Volkswagen Beetle - The Biobug - and we use other blends to fuel heavy equipment at the steam plant. Biobug
