Purcella approaches biodiesel as an accessible and worthwhile way to fulfil both of those qualifications since you can make it for about $1 a gallon and since it's not a petroleum-based product, it's friendly for the environment when burned and is not toxic to Mother Earth if spilled. So let's get started!
Purcella begins by laying out his own lengthy search for information on biodiesel production and relates that he had a heck of a time finding good, factual knowledge on the subject despite trolling all manner of websites, blogs and even more traditional media outlets. Out of this frustration was born an idea to write a DIY book that has all the necessary pieces of the puzzle to enable any would-be biodiesel producer to make up a batch without fear of error or danger. That biodiesel production can be a bit dangerous and is not for those who don't follow checklists is worth noting before you dive in and start mixing up volatile chemicals in your broom closet at home!
The style of the book is straight-forward and easy to digest.Read more ›
