Title: Novel Reactor Design for Biodiesel Production
Drexel University students are designing a novel reactor for producing biodiesel from alternative feedstocks. The reactor minimizes excessive soap production while increasing the efficiency of conversion to biodiesel and is especially suited for low-value waste oils such as yellow grease and trap grease.
