If you use KOH, NOT NaOH, and recover the excess methanol you can use it as a liquid fertilizer, Mix it with cattle feed, Or use it in compost. I use it all 3 ways.

My new processor will use it for process heat. Last winter I used it to heat my shop! I made a ton of feed pellets with it last month, and am presently feeding it to 10 calves, so far so good, no problems. This winter I will use it in a pellet stove. I think we'll find many more uses for it also.

I talked with the head of our county Road Dept last week and we will try it next month as a dust control agent on gravel roads.
