KCC’s Maritime Tech Program: Making Oil and Water Mix

KINGSBOROUGH COMMUNITY COLLEGE–If you smell French Fries off the coast of Kingsborough Community College, it’s not from the school’s cafeteria; it’s from the maritime technology department.

Equipped with cooking oil from the school’s culinary department, the ship, dubbed, “French Fry,” starts up in regular Diesel fuel and then switches to cooking oil. With the salty smell coming from the engine and emanating throughout the air during its sails, the name of the vessel is an appropriate one.
