Clayton biodiesel plant up for sale. A shuttered biodiesel refinery in Clayton is for sale again, and its owners say the right buyer can make it profitable, in part because recent tax-law changes restored an expired credit. The current owners, Chesapeake Green Fuels LLC, retained Equity Partners Inc. of Maryland, an investment banker, to seek a buyer for the refinery. The facility was built in 2006 and was sold at auction in 2008. Its current owners tried to move it beyond processing exclusively soybean oil, which had become more expensive, to other vegetable products and animal fats. But they found the upgrades that would have been necessary were too expensive, said Ken Mann, president of Equity Partners. "They spent a ton of money," he said. Mann estimated it would take a $700,000 investment to get the refinery to operate at is full potential and capacity. Biodiesel is typically used as a blend with traditional diesel fuel.
"They've tapped out their desire to make any further investment in this facility," Mann said. Glass Tubing for PBR - Photobioreactors - DURAN. SICHUAN FOREVER CHEMICAL ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD. Bio-diesel is a renewable energy source. It is made from vegetable oil and animal oil by catalysis reaction. In fact, not only the oil plants such as soya and rapeseed, but also the scrap cooking oil (subsurface channel oil, hogwash oil) in hotel and restaurant, living garbage, used plastic, old tyre, straw and so on can used to produce bio-diesel. As a green regenerated energy source, bio-diesel is important to environment care.
It has wide used foreground. Our technology of producing bio-diesel including 3 kinds: 1.The technology of producing bio-diesel by acidifying oil （subsurface channel oil, hogwash oil） The acidifying oil has plentiful of fatty acid (the content is above 40~60%). The technique has widely used in all kinds of raw materials. 2. 3. In the rancidity oil, some oil and fat is ranciditied, so there is some free fatty acid.
5 Million Gallon/Year B-100 BioDiesel Plant For Sale. Make Algae Biodiesel at Home. How Algae Biodiesel Works" The race is on for a new form of fuel.
With gasoline skyrocketing to more than $4 a gallon in 2008, dependence on imported oil and depleting resources worldwide, finding alternatives to petroleum-based fuel and fuel-related products is urgent. Fortunately, scientists have been studying the production of alternative products to make a cleaner, greener fuel for years. It's possible that we may be using one of these alternative fuels in the near future. Alga (or its plural, algae) may be the miracle element in the search for a more environmentally-friendly, mass-produced product that can be converted into fuel.
Algae grow naturally all over the world. You may be wondering exactly how this slimy green stuff can be turned into a fuel for cars and airplanes, and even for the heaters that warm our homes and schools. Algae fuel. "Algal oil", which redirects here, is also a term used for a marine source of omega-3 fatty acids not extracted from fish, a source of docosahexaenoic acid used as a dietary supplement.
A conical flask of "green" jet fuel made from algae Algae fuel or algal biofuel is an alternative to fossil fuel that uses algae as its source of natural deposits. Several companies and government agencies are funding efforts to reduce capital and operating costs and make algae fuel production commercially viable. Like fossil fuel, algae fuel releases CO2 when burnt, but unlike fossil fuel, algae fuel and other biofuels only release CO2 recently removed from the atmosphere via photosynthesis as the algae or plant grew. The energy crisis and the world food crisis have ignited interest in algaculture (farming algae) for making biodiesel and other biofuels using land unsuitable for agriculture.
