Yes, I see that but the quantity of vegetable oil is not going to replace
conventional fuel because there isn't enough of it. Ergo, no substitute. A good
idea to replace a *small* amount of fossil fuel though. It all helps.

I doubt the use of microwaves has any beneficial effect because it's a
*chemical* process. Well known and understood for a decade or more.

So how much chip fat oil is he planning to produce ? There's a very limited
source.

Old 'news'. Try again. People have been turning used vegetable oil into a diesel
substitute for decades now. Yes, it can re-cycle what would otherwise be waste (
and is
sensible if you have a suitable source ) but there's not enough of it to make a
significant impact on total fuel usage.

There are many uses for glycerine, including explosives. Dynamite is
nitroglycerine and a binder.  Most smokeless gunpowder contains a
substantial percentage of nitroglycerine, in the range of 20%.  
Glycerine also can be used to manufacture alkyd (ALCohol/anhYDride)
resins for paints.  Besides soap, glycerine is used in emollients and
cosmetics.  In consumables, glycerine is used to make distilled spirits
taste smoother.
