1 Providing the right technology for small/medium/large scale production of good quality BIODIESEL

2 UPSTREAM----Feedstock Planting Harvesting Pressing (hot or cold)

3 Rapeseed- Brassica Napus Rapeseed- Brassica Napus Canola 1190 l/ha

4 952 l/ha Sunflower 952 l/ha Sunflower

5 Soya 446 l/ha

6 1892 l/ha Jatropha Curcus 1892 l/ha Jatropha Curcus

7 Coconut Cocos nucifera 2700 l/ha

8 Oil Palm 5950 l/ha Oil Palm 5950 l/ha

9 ALGAE Parameters to be defined but we understand that the yield is more favourable than most fruits/kernels.

10 MIDSTREAM TRANSESTRIFICATION PROCESS

12 Technically….. Triglycerides + alcohol methyl esters and glycerol Triglycerides + alcohol methyl esters and glycerol Biodiesel often referred to as methyl ester e.g Rapeseed Methyl Ester (RME) Biodiesel often referred to as methyl ester e.g Rapeseed Methyl Ester (RME) Chemical process referred to as a base-catalysed trans-esterification. Chemical process referred to as a base-catalysed trans-esterification. Straight forward but needs to be done right. Straight forward but needs to be done right. NaOH, Temp

13 Titrate the amount of catalyst Different oils have different levels of free fatty acids FFAs. Different oils have different levels of free fatty acids FFAs. These need to be titrated with catalyst. These need to be titrated with catalyst. A simple dip stick test works well and shows the pH according to colour bands A simple dip stick test works well and shows the pH according to colour bands Read off the amount of catalyst to add from the chart and table supplied Read off the amount of catalyst to add from the chart and table supplied Easy! Easy!

14 What makes the BD400 so effective? Pressurised reactor allows the reaction to be carried out at 85°C w/o methanol boiling off. (Well above “normal” methanol boiling point.) This drives the reaction forwards. Inner stainless steel core, outer stainless steel jacket. Insulated. Good proven mixing. Gives exceptional mixing of reactants not just circulation.

15 100% methanol 70% methanol 85% methanol 55% methanol 40% methanol 17-20% methanol Methanol vapour The reaction works best with high concentrations of methanol and high temp. Add hot oil to warm methanol + catalyst. Gives very high initial methanol:oil ratio – optimal. Minimal vapour space/loss. Incr. pressure & temp to 85°C. Good mixing to complete the reaction Add oil to methanol, not methanol to oil

16 Settling/Storage tank Settling/Storage tank Capacity 1200 litres Empty weight 180 kg Dimensions 1.2m (W), 1.2m (D), 3m (H) 3mm thick stainless steel vessel

17 The biodiesel and glycerine produced BD G 1 hour (+) Methyl Ester Glycerine

18 DOWNSTREAM Filtering,Washing and Polishing

19 Biodiesel Dry Washing & Polishing

20 Adding Dry Washing Powder Here our dry washing powder is being added to the filter. It is soft and white. Similar in consistency to talcum powder.

21 From WCOFrom RBD

22 Magnesol TM Free glycerine - tests prove an 85% reduction in 20 min Water removal - tests prove a 60% reduction in 20 min Methanol content reduced from 0.113% to 0.011% 90% reduction in 20 min Soap – tests; from 651mg/kg to 4mg/kg in 20 min

27 First Trial Run on Mitsubishi Storm Did a run from Shah Alam to Malacca

28 Second Trial on Land Rover - Discovery

29 Diesel powered forklift on biodiesel.Cuts fumes and unpleasant odours.
