Are you an amateur or experienced diesel engineer and want to learn how to make biodiesel from vegetable oil? Wake Technical Community College is hosting a two-day biodiesel workshop on Feb. 16-17.
The workshop is geared to those interested in alternative fuels, with an in-depth presentation of modern diesel technology, including cylinder combustion chemistry, fuel and air management technology and after-treatment systems. Regulations that drive this technology will also be discussed. Those who attend will produce a batch of biodiesel from used vegetable oil with Wake Tech's brand new 40-gallon biodiesel processor.
The workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday at Wake Tech, and will be led by Wake Tech Sustainable Transportation Technologies instructor Rich Cregar.
Wake Technical Community College is located at 9109 Fayetteville Road in Raleigh.
