Abstract

This project was performed in Gurabo, Puerto Rico at Janssen Ortho LLC (JOLLC), part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies. The WPI project team helped JOLLC research and implement a biodiesel test trial using a diesel forklift. This research and testing aided the team in making recommendations for full-scale biodiesel usage at JOLLC. We tested biodiesel in a forklift, interviewed other companies in Puerto Rico that use biodiesel fuel, researched a biodiesel fueling infrastructure, and created a cost analysis. The report makes recommendations to JOLLC concerning how to continue using biodiesel in the future.
