Enzymes For Biodiesel

Did you know; Unlike the chemical process, the enzyme application will not require the removal of inorganic salts (Download our data sheets/PDF's below for more information)

Biodiesel is a renewable energy source unlike other petroleum products that will vanish in years to come. It can be produced on demand and causes less pollution compared to petroleum diesel. Biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable, non - toxic, and essentially free of sulphur and aromatics. 

  

The use of biodiesel helps reduce the dependence on finite fossil fuel reserves. Biodiesel emissions have decreased levels of hydrocarbons and nitrated compounds that have been identified as potential cancer-causing compounds. Biodiesel is typically made by chemically reacting lipids with alcohol producing fatty acid esters. 

  

With extensive R&D, specialised enzymes formulations have been developed for the esterification of the oils to produce biodiesel. In the enzymatic process, there is no soap & no caustic formation and less than a tenth of the energy consumed unlike in the chemical process.  

  

Custom E LIP formulation provides plant flexibility and it allows expanding on different types and cheaper feedstock selection to multi-functional plants working. The major economic benefit of using enzymes comes in their ability to handle a variety of inexpensive and high free fatty acid feedstocks such as Brown Grease, Acid Oils, Used Cooking Oil, Animal Fat, etc 

Biogas

Biogas is a biofuel that is produced naturally via the decomposition of organic waste. When organic matter like animal waste and food scraps break down under an anaerobic environment, i.e, in the absence of oxygen, they release a mixture of gases, mainly carbon dioxide and methane. Since this decomposition occurs in an anaerobic environment, the process of biogas production is also referred to as anaerobic digestion.

The process of anaerobic digestion is a natural waste-to-energy form that uses the fermentation process for breaking down the organic matter. Food scraps, sewage, food scraps, and animal manure are examples of organic matter which can produce biogas through anaerobic digestion. Since methane is higher in content in biogas, generally about 50% to 75%, it makes biogas flammable, and hence it generates a blue flame, which can also be used as an energy source.
