EURO MARKETING TOOLS TO MARKET AND SELL HIGH FFA PROCESSOR
New Module Opens Biodiesel Production to Low Cost Oil Sources
San Jose Calif. March 18, 2008:- Euro Marketing Tools (EMT) will market and sell the Greenline Industries, high FFA processor to process oils and fats with a maximum FFA content below 13%. The new device allows biodiesel producers to process a large number of less valuable oils for biodiesel production.
The transesterification process does not tolerate oils with free fatty acids in excess of 5%. Above that the biodiesel quality starts to deteriorate. In essence that leaves a number of feedstock sources out of the equation and in most cases they become landfill. By reducing the FFA content, yellow greases, old vegetable oils and process oils can now be transformed and used in the biodiesel production process.
“This pre-processing module will go a long way in making less desirable vegetable and animal oils suitable for transesterification processing. It is an added option for biodiesel producers who are facing the high cost of suitable feedstocks for their facilities. We can see a ready market for the units in European countries where there is a large meat processing industry such as France, Belgium, Spain and the UK,” said Peter Brown, EMT principal.
The new unit uses a horizontal, mechanically-aided, thin film evaporator designed to handle a wide range of difficult evaporation and reaction applications. In this application the oil is processed at 470oC and uses nitrogen infusions to strip out the FFAs. Emissions for both water and nitrogen are minimal since the system, like the Greenline processor, does not use water and the nitrogen is recovered and reused. The purified oils, still at high temperature, are immediately inserted into the transesterification unit thus reducing the need for process heat.
The new FFA stripper is available now for biodiesel facilities in the 10 million gallon a year and above size. Please contact Euro Marketing Industries for pricing and availability.
