What you should know when making biodiesel fuel?

Safety precautions when making biodiesel fuel:

  • Use the same safety precautions that are standard practice in any chemistry laboratory.  Eye protection, gloves, long sleeve shirts, shoes, a designated eye wash nearby, etc.
  • Ensure operator safety.  Set the system on a stable and rigid structure so it will not tip over easily, especially when filled with potentially caustic or volatile fluids.
  • Keep the liquids ENCLOSED at all times to minimize exposure to potentially explosive spills or vapors.  Ensure that the system is entirely sealed.
  • Ensure that there is no way a spark can be created in the area where the system is set up.
