WORLD'S FIRST DRY PROCESS BIODIESEL PLANT

I designed the world’s first industrial scale dry-process biodiesel manufacturing facility.  Capable of producing up to 10 million gallons a year, this facility converts canola oil into high-grade biodiesel.  The economized heating system lowers the cost of production per galloin to the lowest in the world.  This is a zero emission facility built in Odessa, WA under the Energy Freedom Fund in 2008.

ALGAE BIOFUEL FACILITY

I designed the first Algae-to-biofuel facility capable of producing up to 40 million pounds of fatty acid, and the cellulosic feedstock for producing local ethanol for the purpose of producing high-grade biodiesel from sunlight and sequestered Carbon Dioxide.  This facility is a continuous flow system that solves the issue of bacterial infection.  Those familiar with the art will know the value in this design.

The image shows an uncovered design, but my improved design is covered, which preserves the water and prevents evaporation losses and bacterial infections.
