IBC Totes

Today we got a bunch of IBC totes (which are approximately 250 gallon containers) from the biodiesel university and WSSC which we hope to sell and use.  The proceeds will go to the farm and hopefully some will be included in the costs of insulating our workspace.

Motor Week is going to be coming down to interview us about the project, so we cleaned up the lab.  (Or tried, at least.)  It is freezing at the Farm so the insulation and extra wall will be extremely welcome.

Good luck on finals!
