The Loyola University Chicago Center for Urban Environmental Research and Policy's (CUERP) Biodiesel Program is now licensed by state and federal authorities to produce and sell its biodiesel fuel, making it the first school program in the U.S.
The program began in 2007 when CUERP received a $10,000 grant from the EPA to implement a new educational model on campus called Solutions to Environmental Problems.
"Our work has just begun, as our biodiesel program plans to collaborate with other universities in the Chicagoland area to collect waste vegetable oil, convert it into biodiesel fuel, and then sell it to other community circulator buses and universities," says Nancy Tuchan, vice provost and former director of CUERP. "I'm so proud of what our students have accomplished thus far, along with their passion for finding solutions that protect the environment and ultimately will make the Loyola community a greener place to live, work, and study."
