Need

To provide a method of distilling essential oils from various plants.

Description

A distillery is needed to add value to our lavender harvest. Bulk lavender sales are very poor performers, financially. A distillery will have many other uses, such as making essential oils from other plants, farm-fuel ethanol production research, and glycerol refining.

Status

  • 2007-07-01 project begun.

Goal or deliverable

A reflux column vacuum still, capable of distilling both essential oils from various sources, and for making farm fuel ethanol.
