    To be candid, so far your method has offered no advantage at all.
    Disadvantages of your method includes, but is not limited to, taking days to perform a batch instead of the hours in the standard procedure and using a huge amount of KOH compared to the standard procedure. Your method also does not producing high conversion biodiesel.




    ...because of the very high catalyst concentration, a stirrer is not required. An el cheapo pool pump from EBay (set to recirculate) provides sufficient shear to make 1000L at a time
    smithy claims he routinely performs the standard single stage procedure in under an hour at room temperature using only a pump for mixing, and as an added bonus, unlike the biodiesel you produce, his biodiesel actually passes the 3/27 quality test

    Hi Everyone,

    I would like to point out that three threads down there is a thread dedicated to discussing the Imisidies method of production.
    Please use that thread when discussing the Imisidies method

    The thread I addressed was transesterification at reduced temperature (not put exactly that way). Drying the reaction mixture with calcium oxide does that. It's a good idea to develop, it works.
