Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The Reventazon River in Cartago, Costa Rica has become polluted by waste oil. COMCURE, an environmental management agency, and five municipalities within Cartago wish to build a plant to process this waste oil into biodiesel. We investigated economic, social and environmental impacts the plant may have through a cost-benefit analysis, site assessments, and research. From our investigation, we concluded that the plant will be profitable, accepted by the public, and should be implemented at a site in Oreamuno.
