As the biodiesel industry grows, so does the nation’s supply of glycerin. Refined glycerin is used in thousands of products from food to toothpaste to personal care products.

One potential use for crude glycerin is as a boiler fuel. AURI and several industry partners tested glycerin for efficacy as an industrial fuel.
