VIRTUAL FIELD TRIP: Making Green Fuel for the Future!

Thursday10/211:30 pm - 2:15 pm

VIRTUAL FIELD TRIP: Register Here

Did you know that you can make diesel and jet fuel from plants or even used French fry oil! What’s crazier is that some of the plants we are using are actually weeds! Come join us at the University of Wisconsin- Platteville for an up-close learning experience about how we do it.  This event contains a virtual lecture and demonstration from students, a biodiesel kit that includes all supplies needed to make your own biodiesel, and a livestream from professors and students to learn just how easy it can be to make green fuel and what college life is like as a Sustainability and Renewable Energy student.  The live stream will also include demonstrations on how we press seeds for oil.

This is an online event.
