TUSKEGEE UNIVERSITY TO HOST BIOFUELS WORKSHOP

August 15, 2008

TUSKEGEE, Ala. -- Farmers interested in biofuels can not only tour a mobile biodiesel production trailer, but make a small batch of it during a workshop set for Aug. 30, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., at Tuskegee University's Vocational Building.

Funding for the workshop is provided by the USDA-Risk Management Agency, through a cooperative partnership agreement with the National Center for Appropriate Technology as part of a project called "Managing Farm Energy Risks."

The workshop will feature presentations by Piedmont Biofuels, a biodiesel cooperative from Pittsboro, N.C., the National Center for Appropriate Technology, the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association and the Tuskegee University Small Farm Rural Economic Development Center.

The workshop will include an introduction to biodiesel production; proper handling and use and a discussion of control procedures designed to ensure the highest quality fuel. Participants will learn how to convert plant matter and restaurant waste into high quality fuel for diesel engines.

While the seminar is free, there is a $20 charge for lunch, and scholarships are available. For more information or to register, call (334) 724-4441 or email William Hodge at whodge@tuskegee.edu.
