Loyola Students Use Thanksgiving Meal Oil Waste to Create Biodiesel Gas

The Biodiesel Program at Loyola University Chicago’s Institute of Environmental Sustainability is hosting its annual Thanksgiving cooking oil collection drive. Community members who deep fry their Thanksgiving turkeys or have containers of used cooking oil in their kitchens are encouraged to donate it to the University. Students will turn the oil donations into biodiesel, a renewable replacement of petroleum diesel fuel. The fuel helps power shuttle buses running between Loyola’s Lake Shore and Water Tower campuses.
