Here are a few great resources for sustainable biodiesel and helpful links:
Biofuel Oasis (Berkeley, California): A worker and women-owned coop that provides fuel, classes, and helpful information about biodiesel. Check out their FAQ page for an especially clear explanation of why late-model VW’s require special attention to use high biodiesel blends.
Collective Biodiesel Conference: A great annual conference that caters to homebrewers, small-scale producers, and anyone interested in sustainability. Last year, the editor of Biodiesel Magazine said it was “the” conference to attend.
Piedmont Biofuels Coop (Pittsboro, North Carolina). A wonderful organization that has a commercial production facility as well as a coop, has developed its own biodiesel curriculum that’s in use in local schools, does consulting, invents new processes, etc.
Utah Biodiesel Supply (Syracuse, Utah): A fantastic resource for biodiesel equipment and information. Very friendly and fast service.
Make Biodiesel: A site that provides great information for home-brewers and DIY folks. Their Homebrew Manual is a clear text to help you get started.
Infopop Biodiesel and SVO Discussion Forums: A great place to connect with other brewers, ask questions, and solve problems.
NearBio.com: A website that helps you find commercial biodiesel near you. Just type your zip code into the box, and it’ll tell you the address and phone of nearby pumps, hours, blend, type of payment accepted, etc.
