I am about to start making biodiesel and have found if I buy methanol and KOH through work it is cheaper but I have to buy 4 x 205l drums of methanol and one tonne of KOH. As I will not be using all this in one go, particularly the KOH I would be interested in selling some on if people are interested. I have a freind in Wollongong who will store it for me. The prices work out at $210 for a 205l drum of methanol and $105 for 25kg of KOH.

If anyone is interested PM me.

Hi Nick

I will check with the supplier if I can squeeze some more money off. I am mostly worried about ending up with the best part of a tonne of KOH in one year that is no good. How often will you be taking the KOH or do you know anyone else around here who would want some.

Cheers

Sorry Nick, I use NaOH as well, and don't pay much more than is being offered for my Methanol.

Hi Nick

Sorry for the delay, the recession hasn't hit our work yet. I have tried to get the prices down but the supplier has said this is the best price. Let me know if you want any methanol, I don't think I will get the KOH as I will be stuck with nearly all of it.

Cheers
