what do you do with the glycerin by-product?

Hi I am looking at buying a biodiesel processor but was wondering how you guys dispose of the glycerin? what is it good for? what is the price to dispose of it? does anyone buy it?

Hey Canyon, what recipe do you use for your soap? I have found several on the net but none work exactly like I want. I prewash my bio with about 5% of the total volume of water after processing. I think that makes my glycerin more liquid than the glycerin in the recipes I've found. I boil off the meth before making the soap but it never gets really firm after cooling. My soap is very temp dependant, if it gets warm it starts to melt, I mean warm as in above 80F.

Honestly I don't have a recipe. I do not have any experience doing it. I just know that some will make the glycerin into soap. I think it will be a learning experience to get a good recipe. Best of luck with that. I would probably get onto a forum for Bio-D brewers if I were looking for that info. Best of luck to you.
