Anyone making their own biodiesel and know the taxes and laws for making it with regard to TN and Feds?
I might be interested in forming a CO-OP.
I am in the Nashville area.
No taxes in TN for using wvo,its food.
I'm interested. But I"m way at the bottom of the learning curve. I don't even have a diesel car or truck, but would get one to make this work.
I'm in middle TN, just east of Nashville. I like the idea of doing it, but for a one person setup, collecting oil then cooking it really is a lot of time. A coop arrangement sounds like a winner.
Is there a coop in Middle tn already?
I am starting a small scale Bio operation in Cookeville. Any within the area interested in perhaps getting together and exchanging ideas, I think it would be great. I'm having a time finding methanol, so pooling to purchase that stuff would also be a good idea as well.
I am a small time biodiesel producer in East tn. I can get your methanol but price varies right now it is close to 200.00 for a 55 gal drum. that is pickup you pickup. shipping is extra
have a good mercedes 300d diesel with 5 cyl turbo diesel in it 25 to 30 mpg 1800.00
I am very interested in working something out with someone in East TN, I am in Knoxville. I have having a hell of a time trying to get resteraunts to give up their WVO.. I thought that would be the easy part. Anyone want to work something out or help a new guy out with some advice or what not it would be awesome..
I am interested in this idea. I would like to see a set up and see what it takes to produce biodiesel. I know at the pumps in Lebanon it is the same price or a few cents more than #2 so I have only used it once. Of course that wasn't exactly the same either. Do you already have the setup for producing? I have read somewhere on here that there is a place around the Knoxville area to get some of the chemicals. I would be interested in driving up there to pick up if needed. Anyway let me know your thoughts on this.

What kind of questions do you have? Maybe I can point you in a direction. I live here in Bradley county and I purchase all the required chemicals locally. Let me know.
The biggest problem I am having is getting WVO. I have pretty much given up. I didn't build a processor because I was going to gather some oil before I spent the money on the processor so I didn't just have it sitting there collecting dust.
Any ideas on that? I think I understand the process pretty well, or it should come back to me if I start researching again and actually get this thing up and running.
I am also interested in this seminar/class a couple posts up. Might check into that.
Sorry for the late reply. I was the same way. Collect the wvo first. I posted some free ads on craigslist and within a couple of months I had a couple of resturants. Back when prices were $4 plus a gallon - I set a goal of collecting 400 gallons. Then I purchased my processor. So after processing this oil my processor was paid for. As of last week, I have about 60 cents per gallon in my BD. Again, sorry for the very delayed reply. I'm actually in school now pursing an Alternative Energies Degree. :-)
Hello I'll be moving to TN in a couple of months I just opened an account in order to find out if there is someone out there currently selling biodiesel? I own a F350 2006, could I pour the biodiesel directly or must I modify the truck? Please contact me email@example.com please let me know the price per gallon. Does any one know if biodiesel will better the trucks mpg? Thank you!
You can mixed (any percentage) of petro and bio. No modifications are needed to your truck.
