Adding Value to the Raw Glycerol from Biodiesel: ABATEC SA Improves Its Technology
San Miguel, Argentina, August 14, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- ABATEC SA introduces the BD4-MG system, to manufacture Methanol from raw Glycerol.
It is an innovative way for adding value to the glycerol produced in biodiesel plants.
The SAVOIA BD4-MG system is a simple and safe process to treat 1000 L/day (250 gal/d) of glycerol, for getting around 35% of dry methanol, 25% FFA and a balance of glycols. The only inputs are water and power.
The Methanol and FFA's can be added to the alcoholysis reaction to reduce the biodiesel production cost.
With this new and affordable equipment, ABATEC SA improves its technological line for adding value to the glycerol, as the company also offers the BD2-G reactor to convert 100% glycerol in cattle feed.
