BI Filler Photo-01This project proposes that UC Berkeley generate its own biodiesel using the 500 gallons of used cooking oil generated weekly by Crossroads Dining Commons, Foothill Dining Commons, and the Golden Bear Café, for consumption in the campus’s Bear Transit buses. The team has been able to project production of 500 gallons weekly if two reactors are used. Fuel can be produced for $1.44 per gallon and could be sold to Bear Transit for $2.00 per gallon, potentially making the operation financially sustainable.
