Biocap is designed to provide a solution to the environmental problem of disposing household oils. The project creates a primary collecting center for used vegetable oils. The school also has an agreement with a company that is authorized to process the used oil into biodiesel. The school receives a large barrel for used vegetable oil from the company, and the household containers are emptied using a system designed and created by the students themselves.

In the near future, the students hope to encourage others in the community to create primary collecting centers as well.
