 Get to know Andrew Rumbold of Bucks County Freedom Fuel. 

What are you going to speak about at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR? 

Andrew RumboldI am going to do a demonstration on how to use simple chemistry to make biodiesel from vegetable oil using readily available ingredients. Biodiesel can be used in virtually any diesel engine or home heating burner with little or no modification. It is biodegradable, better for engines, and has a lower pollution factor. Most people produce biodiesel for less than $1 per gallon. I will be making a 1 liter batch of fuel, sharing photographs of our processor and answering questions.

What are you most looking forward to sharing with FAIR attendees? 

How you don’t have to be a chemist or rocket scientist to make your own fuel.

Tell us about your background with your particular topic.
