    I cleaned out my biodiesel dry wash stand. Essentially, a 6" by 6 foot pipe that you pump fuel thru to catch soaps, glycerine and impurities.

    SO.. the stuff is mostly sawdust. Figured I'd burn it in small amounts. WOW! There's some energy in that stuff.

    I threw in a small cardboard box filled with some on top of a bed of coals. Off to the races. Burned real hot and tons of heat coming out of the boiler. Short lived with a little at a time. But easy way to get rid of slimy, greasy sawdust.
