Like all of us I have spent the last few weeks observing the environmental horror that has befallen the Gulf Coast of Mexico. Nothing less than catastrophic ill can result from an oil spill of this magnitude. I have been working on an update to a biodiesel recipe calculator. HR 4213 is on the verge of passage, implementing amongst its other mandates the retroactive extension of the biodiesel excise tax credit.
We are awash in internal projects; the construction of an oil dryer; fabrication and installation of a new ion exchange column; the occasional major pump repair. We are also in the process of collecting and reviewing our internship applicants for the Summer 2010 program.
