Disposal of Glycerol
I\'ve tried as many places as I can find to take my glycerol and nobody wants it.
I\'ve done contacts of contacts the lot and nothing.

The question is:- How do I get rid of 300+ ltrs of glycerol?


Any help will be very much appreciated

MKI squirrel,
2x pumps,
quad condenser and a SHHE

Jim, is anybody running a biodigester near you? They love the stuff and will take it off your hands.

If the methanol and hydroxide are removed the bacteria convert it to gas. It is a bit like adding sugar to yeast.
They just have to be careful that the percentage is not too high.
Same for composting , it needs to be mixed with much more bulk to avoid overloading the bacteria.

Its fantastic in my septic tank too,

anyone with a biodigesting sewage system could take the whole lot and let mother earth recycle it for you.

So the redundant disconnected
and part filled septic tank in my garden may be a good place to store my glycerol........

Frisp if by disconnected you mean stopped up outflow then yes.

if you add an aquarium bubbler the anerobes will devour it and digest it.

it will need emptied eventually , but you will also need to add a good ration of carbon and nitrogen ,for the bacteria to work effectively.

the oxygen will limit methane production.

biodigester just like nature intended.
