A Clean Solution

Record #:
Tawana Weicker of Polk County began developing biofuel from spent cooking oil in 2007. While searching for a use for the by-product, glycerin, Weicker created soap, which she now sells under the name Warhouse. This invention has sparked educational programs in Polk County as well as at nearby universities and is inspiring biofuels researchers.
