Q:
Hi, I am actuality trying to make Biodiesel. I have a local restaurant that is willing to give me there used vegetable oil for the production of my diesel. But one of the problems I am having is getting all of the water out of the oil before I move into the process of transesterification. In your opinion what would be the easiest, and most coast effective way to remove water from used cooking oil? Thanks, Jacob
