Nevada Biodiesel Plant

The folks at Infinifuel just announced their Nevada biodiesel plant, which is unique in that it incorporates geothermal energy into the production process:
"The facility is home to the first geothermal power plant in Nevada. There are two production geothermal wells and seven power production units providing over 5 MW of electrical energy. In addition, the 220 degree steam will be used in the production of biodiesel on site."
Here's the location on Google Maps.

  1. Hi, good to see the post. I've just found some guys in New Hampshire, who are looking at biodiesel from algae too. Nice twist to use geothermal energy. You can see that post at www.icis.com/blogs/biofuels. Take a look at the blog, perhaps we should exchange links...

  2. I am happy to say that I have been making by own biodiesel with a new biodiesel processor, model 1301. I am able to make enough fuel for my Jetta for a week!

    Anyway, I have created an algae bioreactor using the remnants of a biodiesel processor I tried to make myself.:-) The biodreactor can make a dense slurry of whatever type of algae you want. I grew Chlorella and made enough to consider it a success. If anyone is interested I would be willing to sell it. I don't have the time or the money to try and figure out how to get the oil out of the algae, although the reactor grows 40 gallons of algae very fast. It's a closed system that can use artificial light or the sun. Anyway, if anyone is interested my email is cynthia_marketsmart at yahoo dot com.
