Title: A Sustainable and Interdisciplinary Solution to Biodiesel Production Wastewater

Building on the success of the school’s 2008 P3 Biodiesel project, students at Loyola University of Chicago are designing a unique green process to treat byproducts of biodiesel production. The current biodiesel process creates salts, oils and methanol as waste products. The team is designing a combination distillation and wetlands system to treat and reuse the contaminants onsite making biodiesel production fully sustainable.
