Abma Biodiesel Processor
Mark Abma, a longtime friend and one of the best free skiers in the world, founded 1STEP, a non-profit organization that aims to find and communicate practical ways for winter sports communities worldwide to practice their sport with environmental sustainability in mind.
Helly Hansen, one of Mark’s sponsors, contracted The Public Works to build Mark a fully automated biodiesel processor in his home in Whistler, BC. In addition to the design, engineering and fabrication of the processor, we also worked closely with Whistler Blackcomb, which now provides the used cooking oil for the new processor. And we worked with a great collection of media partners to spread the story.
This project is a marquee example of the breadth and depth of The Public Works capabilities. It also serves as an illustration of the endless results that can be achieved when we’re working together with great partners.
(And, as an epilogue to this story, we’d like to share that although we built ourselves processor years ago and have been making biodiesel to power our vehicles, this project gave us the inspiration to completely revamp our own system with full automation and an even better fuel quality output.)
