Biodiesel, processed in a biodiesel manufacturing plant or biodiesel processing plant refers to the addition of a methyl /ethyl group to the aliphatic chains in vegetable oils or animal fats rendering them equivalent to the properties of diesel. This is achieved by chemically reacting lipids (e.g., vegetable oil, Fatty acids, animal fat, and used cooking oil) with alcohol (Methyl/Ethyl) producing fatty acid esters either in a Jatropha biodiesel plant, Karanja biodiesel plant, Mahua biodiesel plant, Enzymatic biodiesel, Continuous stirred tank reactor Biodiesel, or a Multi feedstock B100 Biofuel Plant.
The feedstock for Biodiesel can be categorized into two broad segments, viz:
Low Grade Feed Stock
This includes used cooking oil, Acid Oil, Low-grade Fatty Acid, High FFA vegetable oil.
High Grade Feed Stock
This includes Low FFA vegetable oil (CPO, Soya, Sunflower, etc.), Palm Stearin, High-Grade Fatty Acid & Tallow.
The glycerine phase will be discharged from the bottom of the separation tank.
