Join us to learn about one of the hottest topics in alternative energy, biodiesel! Trey Teall, the VP of Operations at Biodico, will be joining us on Saturday, May 7th to give a presentation about biodiesel production and analysis on the UC Santa Barbara campus.
Biodico specializes in Alternative Energy Solutions including the design, production, and operation of sustainable biorefineries. Their core competency is biofuel/bioenergy production. In 2003 Biodico started work under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the US Navy, a partnership that continues fruitfully to this day at Naval Base Ventura County in California. In 2010 it became clear that the commercial byproducts of biodiesel production (such as glycerin and inedible seed meal) were significant and they began to focus on energy added uses of these byproducts rather than just disposal methods.
