A new type of high conversion reactors
Biodiesel is an oxygenated biofuel, product of the transesterification reaction of triglycerides present in vegetable oils and animal fats with a low molecular weight alcohol in the presence of a homogeneous catalyst to form fatty esters – Biodiesel-, and glycerol. Biodiesel is used in heating systems and as an additive in diesel engines in mixtures of 10% (B10) and 20% (B20), and in some cases, depending on their purity, used directly in ignition engines.
Currently, biodiesel is produced using very low conversion batch reactors which leads to the need to use large amounts of energy for the purification of biodiesel. Our HCM® Technology offers a new type of reactors where you get high conversion and operate on a continuous basis.
Dynamic cavitation reactor of magnetic pulses. You can use any type of oil including animal fat by obtaining a conversion from triglycerides to biodiesel up to 99%. Handles flows from 500 to 1000 L/h.
