Effective biodiesel distillation using the Short-Path Evaporator
Biodiesel is proving to be one of the most important renewable alternatives in the transport sector and should contribute significantly to sustainable mobility in the future.
Additional advantages of the technology are:
- Above-standard ester contents.
- Minimal fouling effect and uncomplicated cleaning.
- Flexible adaptation to fluctuating feedstock compositions.
Compared to the rectification column, the short-path evaporator has significantly lower investment and operating costs. In the Pilot Plant / Technical Center, biodiesel feedstocks can be purified in the short-path evaporator on a trial basis and are tested for their blending capability. After completing the test series, a detailed pilot plant report and around 30 to 40 samples are available for further analysis.
