Catawba County has an off-site partnership with Warhorse Solutions, a soap manufacturing company that uses the glycerin derived from various crops in the biodiesel production and turns it into household, personal and pet friendly cleaning products. WARHORSE and Catawba County both strive to offer students the opportunity to learn and use their expertise for improving sustainability.

Many Polk County High School students have made biofuel from school cafeteria’s used cooking oil and have worked with local universities to bring biofuels chemistry and an educational mobile unit with processor and seed press onsite.
