  • Hello, and thank you for your interest in the Puget Sound Chapters of Engineers Without Borders. This presentation will give a brief overview of EWB, the Puget Sound chapter projects, our partner organizations, and our kind supporters.
  • EWB-PSP members and a local school teach have designed and built a prototype for a bio-diesel reactor that will be installed this August in Negril, Jamaica. Waste vegetable oil from the hospitality industry will provide a renewable fuel source for emergency responders, benefiting three surrounding parishes.
