Methyl Ester (Biodiesel)

Our Experience in Methyl Ester (Biodiesel)

Lurgi was the first to develop the continuous biodiesel processing plant. Since the 1990s, Lurgi GmbH has supplied biodiesel plants across the world. Today, JJ-Lurgi equips the industry with technology for the effective processing of vegetable and animal oils into high quality biodiesel.

Biodiesel Production

Quality Standards Surpassed

The quality produced exceeds international EN 14214 and ASTM D6751 standards. The end product is ready for diesel-powered cars and engines and can be used as intermediate in surfactant and personal care applications after components have been separated by fractionation.

Oil Transesterification with High Conversion

The transesterification process combines refined oils with methanol and a catalyst under atmospheric pressure and temperatures around 60C in multi-stage reactors to produce biodiesel (methyl esters) and glycerine. Our patented glycerine cross-flow design reduces catalyst consumption. The process offers high degree of conversion, yielding one kilogram of biodiesel for every one kilogram of feedstock.
