After rain and more rain, a sunny day was warmly welcomed by all.
And we made biodiesel.
Actually, I continued diligently on soldering, caulking, and trimming the solar panels. Marcin cut metal for the panel frames.Â Â I’ve been working on the panels for the last 3 months and Marcin is bored after doing anything twice, so, while important aspects of the operation here, these are hardly worth a post.
The biodiesel, on the other hand, is this beautiful amber-golden liquid that became a reality as we slept.Â It finished its reaction overnight and all we had to do was pour off the glycerin from the bottom of the drum and then fill up the vehicles with fuel. That is newsworthy.Â That is an engaging drama.Â That is Factor E Live quality material.
Well, don’t get too excited yet.Â We have the footage and will share the updates in the near future.Â In the meanwhile, I thought you might enjoy a few pictures to wet your appetite.
From left to right: The heavier, darker glycerin is drained from the bottom of the reaction chamber.Â Next, note the lighter color.Â Some biodiesel is escaping with the last of the glycerin.Â On the right, after all the glycerin has been drained off, we empty the liquid gold biodiesel from the tank.
