Naknek – King Salmon Fish Oil Biodiesel Course – Oct 10-12, 2008

September 18, 2008

Our biodiesel and svo seminars are now available for college credit!  UAF Bristol Bay is hosting a one-credit three-day Biodiesel and Fish Oil Fuel Systems course Friday October 10th to Sunday October 12th.

The course is subsidized by the Bristol Bay Economic Development Council, so we are able to offer a 15-hour course for only $75!  Registration ends Next FRIDAY September 26th, so hop to it and call 246-4292.  Here’s the SCIA F193 registration form, and the SCIA F193 Class Flyer.

This course will provide students with the knowledge to design straight vegetable/fish oil (SVO) fuel systems and biodiesel processing techniques. Students will learn safe chemistry techniques and will make their own small batches of biodiesel.

In addition, we will study the state of biodiesel in Alaska, look at which diesels work on vegetable/fish oil the best, explore the science behind biodiesel and SVO systems, compare emissions, learn how to collect oil responsibly, and discuss storage requirements.

We will investigate the different types of processors and SVO systems available and will develop plans for local implementation of biodiesel/SVO systems.
