A Novel Biodiesel Processor that More Than Doubles the Energy Efficiency of Biodiesel Production

I've developed a mechanism for converting oils into biodiesel that is far more energy efficient than existing technology by implementing a variety of energy saving systems to reduce the fossil energy use of agitating, heating, transferring, and purifying the chemicals involved in biodiesel production. I tested an original system of purification that uses no energy, and determined the rate of agitation at which each process of biodiesel production is the most energy efficient. The ratio of fossil energy input to renewable energy output of my processor indicates that it is 132% more energy efficient than the current standard technology.
