Make your own biodiesel with this mobile biodiesel processing plant made from a common beverage trailer.


Excellent site for DIY machines with free open source plans. Here are three practical machines that caught my attention:

Self Contained Mobile Biodiesel Processing Trailer
“The farm based self-contained mobile biodiesel plant constructed by GreenStart is based on a common aluminum beverage trailer platform. The heat and power is provided by a 3 phase diesel generator coupled with a 10hp air compressor. Each functional component is designed to fit the standard beverage skid of 36″ square which enables swapping of components. The shutter sides provide secure weatherproof environment for storage and transport. The low deck height also facilitates operation and maintenance from the ground level.”
