Biofuel from Left-Over Cooking Oil

Don’t throw your used cooking oil, now it may help you run your car.

Used cooking oil may now be turned into biofuel that can be blended with diesel, gasoline, and LPG. The inventor Emiliano F. Quitiol, a member of the Davao Inventors Association (DIA), Southeastern Mindanao Inventors Society (SMIS), Mindanao Inventors Federation, Inc., and the Filipino Inventors Society, made this biofuel available in Davao through the pilot production of his developed technology at the Davao City-based EFQ Biofuel plant.

A test happened last April 28, 2010 at Panacan, Davao City wherein 2 million vials of biofuel per month at 30 ml per vial were produced. The cost for production of the basic equipment and working funds for the pilot production was provided by the Department of Science and Technology’s Technology Application and Promotion Institute (TAPI). The so-called EFQ Biofuel is applied as chemical addition to combine with the diesel, gasoline, and LPG fuels with the suggested ratio of 1:1 or 1ml biofuel to 1 liter gasoline or diesel fuel. This will progress the performance of vehicle engines and will lessen the fuel consumption. In the next 30 years fossil fuels will finally end. [via mb.com.ph]
