Car Conversion Workshop - July 4th 2012


Are you concerned about the fuel we are using for cars and its consequences on our health and the environment?

It’s no secret that the world’s fossil fuel stores are diminishing.  One solution to this crisis is to run our vehicles and machinery on vegetable oils. Vegetable oil is a renewable resource and can be derived from multiple sources including algae that can be grown with limited land use. It is difficult to make motor vehicles completely environmentally sound but we can certainly go a long way. That’s why we convert diesel vehicles to run on pure plant oil mostly from waste vegetable oil sources.

Join us if you are interested in the practical technology involved to adapt modern diesel engines for the use of renewable resources. You can learn how easy it is to teach a vehicle new tricks in recycling and we will have examples on hand. Dr. Björn Ratjen, who has converted many vehicles (and people), will present ideas on making personal transportation more environmentally friendly. Daryl Giesbrecht, a car conversion specialist will also be on hand with the vehicles to be converted.  Questions from attendees are strongly encouraged.

Join us in promoting a sustainable fuel source and supporting a more healthy, economical and environmentally-friendly way to run your diesel engine.

Dockside Green in Victoria. 

There will be two sessions 10AM and 2PM.
