RED started a pilot for making biodiesel in Singida, Tanzania.

RED has a lab, a biodiesel installation, an electric press and a filter maschine.

The materials which are used are plants oils, KOH, NaOH.

Plant oils can be of the neem tree, moringa oleifera, jatropha, aloe vera etc.

Which usefull products can we make for the locals ?

And how can we produce these products ?

We suggest, jatropha biodiesel, neem tree pesticid, aloe vera and moringa oleifera soaps.

These products can be made by the students of SEMA and/or other people (women) of Singida.

RED has a junior sientist in chemistry.

We like to get help on all levels.
