The Biodiesel Initiative
The KU Biodiesel Initiative is a grassroots, student-run operation to produce biodiesel from used cooking oil generated on campus. The Initiative focuses on research, sustainability, and outreach. It is our ultimate goal to meet the requirements of all KU’s buses, landscaping and maintenance equipment, and power generators on campus with this renewable fuel.
Project EARTH (Environmentally Applied Research Toward Hydrofluorocarbons) is focused on identifying sustainable processes for the selective separation of hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerant mixtures. Learn more about this project here.
