Join the co-op and work together to filter and dewater waste vegetable oil. We have all the equipment & raw materials to dewater and filter vegetable oil for use as a diesel fuel alternative.

By working together we can share the work and collect, filter and dewater waste vegetable oil (WVO). Waste vegetable oil can be stored, dewatered, settled, pumped (pneumatic pumps with compressor) and filtered (1 micron/5 microm dual, cleanable bag filters).

I am going to Clearwater Ecovillage this weekend to teach in their Permaculture Design Course about veggie oil as a fuel for vehicles, light, heat, and cooking. So excited! Pretty soon we will be moving all the veggie oil cooperative to Travis's new home out in Ferndale.
Good job Travis. Hopefully your setup can be replicated throughout the county, thus insuring markets with full shelves in times ahead.
The co-op is fully function now at River Haven Farm.
Hi Travis, you can post a link to your offering on my faceboo page too.
Also consider posting on the Whatcom Farmers list serve email.
Local farmers may have the land & building, and some are already making & using biodiesel for their tractors.
Also, consider contacting one of our first environmentally aware mechanics, Larry, at Rainbow Auto....who kept auto fluids out of the soil & water table decades before it was a 'law'.
