About - Biodiesel Processor Feasibility Study at UC Davis (SpringBoard BioPro)
Spring 2020 - ABT 212
Biodiesel is a clean diesel fuel derived from plants or animals and has significant environmental benefits over diesel. However, it has not yet been in wide use due to a lack of infrastructure and policies. The project goal is to perform a neutral feasibility study for Springboard Biodiesel and determine the financial and environmental benefits to implement an oil to biodiesel converter on the UC Davis campus. The client for this project, Springboard biodiesel’s president Matthew Roberts, wishes to obtain an objective analysis on the feasibility of their product to be implemented on UC Davis’ campus.
