Pretreatment


  • All equipment is typical for an industrial process and not simply a collection of tanks and plastic tubing
  • Using a proven design ensures maximum equipment reliability and product quality
  • Pretreating any substandard fats and oils saves on capital and operating expenses in the transesterification plant—an overall savings for an integrated plant
  • A flexible pretreatment design allows a variety of biodiesel feedstocks to be processed in the same equipment


  • Straightforward process which is similar to proven edible oil refining technologies
  • Pretreatment can be designed to also allow the production of edible oil in order to take advantage of the ups and downs of variable industry conditions
  • Phosphatide and fatty acid byproducts are similar to the ones produced in an edible oil plant—enabling byproduct sales to an existing market
