Biodiesel Lab Fellowships

The Biodiesel Program continues to be a student-designed, student-driven program. All aspects of the program from biodiesel fuel production and equipment design, to project management and brainstorming are run in part by Loyola students. This opportunity is open to students of every level and from every discipline.

Fellows work in a team capacity with other fellows to run the day-to day operations of the lab (biodiesel production, oil collection, waste processing), and additionally take a leadership role on a project in the Biodiesel Lab (new product development, education initiative, marketing, energy efficiency). We will work in a number of different topic areas: chemistry, business, marketing, and grant writing.
