|Where is Yoderville?
The Yoderville Biodiesel Collective (YBDC) is a small group founded to prove that people have the ability to take an active role in their energy independence.
Our members are so impressed with Biodiesel’s obvious environmental, economic and geopolitical attributes that we have been compelled to act. We focus on locally available waste fryer oil due to ample supply and the sustainability of this base stock.
The Collective is comprised of volunteers who pool resources to collect waste oil and convert it to biodiesel. The YBDC first got together in the fall of 2004 and assembled a 50 gallon batch processor at a small farm south west of Iowa City on the Orval Yoder Turnpike (the inspiration for the group’s name). During the first phase, the group processed approximately 2,000 gallons of fuel over a 5 month period at a material cost of about $0.80 per gallon.
