C.A.R.E. - Clean Renewable Energy
  • Presented by Tim Handy

12
Objectives
  • To give students a chance to be actively involved
    in reducing the carbon footprint of WSU
  • To give undergraduate engineering students a
    chance to get real world engineering experience
    through the production of biodiesel
  • To provide 50 gallons of biodiesel per week to
    fuel a WSU garbage truck
  • To construct a fuel processor that is safe,
    effective, and economically self sustaining

November 2, 2007 MME Advisory Board
Meeting C.A.R.E.
13
Current Status
  • We are currently in construction of the biodiesel
    processor
  • Construction of the processor is expected to be
    complete by the end of the fall semester
  • The processor is located and upon completion will
    operate in ELB 59

November 2, 2007 MME Advisory Board
Meeting C.A.R.E.
14
Future Plans for Operation
  • Once processor and filtering system is complete
    participating students will perform all aspects
    of the biodiesel production
  • Tasks performed will include
  • Collection of waste oil from Northside dining
    center
  • Obtaining methanol and potassium hydroxide from
    central stores
  • Mixing of methoxide (methanol and KOH) and waste
    oil
  • Working valves and pump to decant and transfer
    biodiesel
  • Filtering of biodiesel product
  • The system will provide a clean burning fuel with
    feedstock from a renewable source
  • The processor is designed so that expansion of
    the system to produce larger batches of biofuel
    can be performed with relative ease

  • WSU Solar Splash is a student run group whose
    mission is to design and build a solar powered
    electric boat for the Solar Splash Competition.
    Solar Splash is an international competition held
    every year in June. During the five day event,
    student teams are scored in seven different
    categories including technical report, visual
    displays, workmanship, sprint and maneuverability
    qualifier, solar slalom, sprint race, and
    endurance race.
