Feedstock for bio

I've heard of people buying feedstock oil for biodiesel production relatively cheap. Where would I go to find it?

Re: Feedstock for bio

Depends on what feedstock you want. The stuff can be made out of nearly anything but the cost, quality and BTU of the fuel will vary. Least expesnive method would be good waste oil from cooking, so long as it is not scorched. New oil will be quite a bit more expensive.

Yeah I've got a couple restaraunts supplying me now. Was much easier than I thought, esp. in the city where the enviromentalist people flock. Tell them you're making bio and they get all excited and tell their friends who give you more oil.

Re: Feedstock for bio

The original question was never answered. I've got a friend ready to drop 10k on a bio system but won't do it unless he can locate a source of oil. I'm sure to be in if I can locate a dependable source for him. Help would really be nice!!!

I've found that if you make friends with some restaraunt people, you can get plenty of oil for free.

I'm talking about enough for 1k-2k gallons per week.

Oh. That's a lot. I'm not sure where you would find that much.
