Eco Entrepreneurs

Peter, a retired engineer who lives in Waitati (near Dunedin), says he has designed a prototype system which will convert household organic waste into biodiesel fuel. His contraption links up to an existing ‘insinkerator’ disposal unit or can be fed directly with compost and shredded garden waste.

Future biofuel?

“With my system anybody can make biodiesel. It’s easy, you can make it in your kitchen – and it’s BETTER than the petro-diesel fuel the big oil companies sell you”, Peter said.

“Your diesel motor will run better and last longer on your home-made fuel, and it’s much cleaner – better for the environment and better for health. If you make it from kitchen waste it’s not only cheap but you’ll be recycling a waste product which otherwise goes down the gurgler.”

Is this for real?

Does this sounds fanciful? Maybe, but this story is not as far fetched as you might think (in fact, if you’re especially keen to DIY then here’s a recipe).

As I mentioned in my previous blog, I’m working on an exciting new system which could help people like Peter, and anybody who needs help with an eco-project of any size.

My goal is to give everyone the opportunity to support the entrepreneurs, ideas-people and volunteers who need extra know-how, time, people, resources or money to get their eco-projects off the ground.
