Green Chemistry: The Production of Biodiesel
Chemistry Educational Materials
Green Chemistry Learning Activities
Teach Your Students how Biodiesel is Made.
- Real life experimentation
- Green chemistry
In this activity, students will be performing a two-phase process to produce small batches of crude biodiesel for use in the demonstration of the burning qualities of both biodiesel and vegetable oil. Includes an optional small-scale exercise where students will use a washing procedure to experience the full process of making biodiesel to meet quality levels necessary for use in vehicles.
