LSU AgCenter to host more biodiesel workshops July 29-31

By popular demand, the LSU AgCenter will host another set of one-day workshops on how to make your own biodiesel. The available dates are July 29, 30 or 31 at the W.A. Callegari Environmental Center in Baton Rouge.

“We had standing room only at our workshops in June,” said Bill Carney, director of the Callegari Center. “This set of workshops will follow the same format with presentations, demonstrations and time for questions and answers.”

The workshops are free, but Carney is requiring registration. Attendees are to register on the Internet by going to

Each workshop begins at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 11:30 a.m. People can return at 1 p.m. for questions and answers and to watch a demonstration of how to use the equipment to make biodiesel.

“It takes 48 hours to make a batch of 25-30 gallons of biodiesel,” Carney said. “We will make a batch as part of this series of workshops.”

Carney said it takes a minimum investment of $800 in equipment to make batches of 25 to 30 gallons.

He will provide handouts with information about getting the equipment and supplies and with the steps involved in biodiesel production.

He said the LSU AgCenter will also host a series of advanced workshops on biodiesel production in the fall.
