Ethanol and Biofuels

by Babcock & Wilcox MEGTEC     based in De Pere, WISCONSIN (USA)

Controlling the VOCs and CO emissions produced in the feed dryers (wet and dry milling), coupled with the particulate matter being introduced and the need for the reduction of NOx are just the start of having a successful abatement solution. The challenges of smooth pressure control that reduces dryer fluctuations and plug resistant media that lessen the frequency of bake-outs are also part of a successful abatement system and we have the solutions. Our engineered oxidation systems provide reliable performance with minimal maintenance requirements. Externally accessible valve bearings and other critical components are kept out of the corrosive moisture-laden streams extending the life of the equipment and facilitate maintenance intervals. Our simple oxidizer designs control your emissions with minimal facility intervention and allow us to provide you with reliable and dependable equipment.

Production of Biofuels from Microalgae

by AlgaEnergy, S.A.     based in Alcobendas, SPAIN

Production of biofuels from certain microalgae and cyanobacteria would appear to be the most promising alternative to current methods, since its yield is very high, sustainable, uses either wastewater, brackish or seawater, does not require the use of agricultural land, does not compete with human food and the cultivation process consumes the CO2noxious gas.

ALGAENERGY is responsibly paving the way towards making microalgal-based biofuels industrially profitable.  The R&D projects assigned to this task include work on selection and genetic engineering of different microalgae to produce substantial lipid-carriers, some of them patented, as well as the establishment of a suitable and scalable production process.

Evaporators technology for biogas and biofuels industries

by EVALED - Veolia Water Technologies     based in Zoppola (PN), ITALY

Combining industrial performance and sustainable development while remaining competitive requires that the biofuels and biogas industry ensure industrial process safety, reduce operational costs, implement solutions providing significant savings and comply with environmental regulations, which ultimately lead to the public’s acceptance of a site.

Centrifuges for Edible Fats, Oils & Biofuels

by Flottweg SE     based in Vilsbiburg, GERMANY

Centrifuges for Extracting Oil and Fat, and Manufacturing Biofuels. Centrifuges are often the focal point of process engineering systems used in oil and fat extraction as well as for manufacturing biofuels.

Measuring the Biofuel Blend Ratio in Gasoline and Diesel Fuels

by Spectro Scientific     based in Chelmsford, MASSACHUSETTS (USA)

As more mandates for a minimum of ethanol in gasoline and biodiesel in diesel come into effect, major oil companies are blending higher percentages of biofuels at their terminals. A quick analytical measurement method to assess the blend ratio can be a valuable asset for fuel distributors, engine manufacturers, fleet operators, and regulatory agencies. The InfraCal Biodiesel and Ethanol Blend Analyzers offer a quick way to verify that fuel blends are on spec. They are ideal for use for non-technical personnel and measurement results take less than one minute.

Measurement of methane, methanol and ethanol for the biomass monitoring for biofuels.

by MOCON - Baseline     based in Lyons, COLORADO (USA)

The Series 8900 provides direct measurement of methane, methanol, and ethanol for the biofuel industry. The Series 8900 GC employs a flame ionization detector (FID). The methane, methanol, and ethanol in the gas sample are physically separated using proprietary GC columns. A dual-column configuration with timed backflush to vent is used to strip off moisture and heavier gases. At sample injection, a fixed volume of sample is carried through the pre-cut column. The backflush is timed so that primarily the MME and other similar compounds continue on to the analytical column. Contaminants are then backflushed to vent. Methane, methanol, and ethanol are separated from potentially interfering components on the analytical column and elute to the detector for analysis.

Measurement of oil content of oil bearing algae used for biofuel production

by Oxford Instruments plc     based in Abingdon, UNITED KINGDOM

We assist the rapidly growing global biofuels industry through our MQC analysers, speeding up analyses by up to 250 times, and dispensing with the need for hazardous solvents and skilled operators required for traditional methods such as soxhlet extraction and chromatography. Benchtop, non-destructive single seed analysers enable seed breeders to select the highest oil bearing single seeds, accelerating the breeding of high oil bearing seeds for biofuel purposes by up to five years. Typical seeds are Jatropha and Camelina; our breadth of applications capability allows almost all seeds to be characterised. Benchtop seed analysers allow seed co-operatives and biofuel crushers/processors rapidly and accurately to measure the oil and moisture content of biofuel seeds. This enables farmers to be paid according to oil content, and crushing/oil processing to be optimised for the oil and moisture content to achieve the highest quality biofuel output.

Ethanol can be produced from a variety of raw materials such as corn, sugar cane, soy beans, switchgrass, corn stover, and cellulosic materials.   Corn can be processed in a dry or wet mill to produce ethanol.  Advances and research in ethanol continues to find new and more energy efficient ways to produce ethanol and biofuels and new raw materials for production.

Evidence for claims of sustainability / responsible stewardship

by Ecometrica     based in London, UNITED KINGDOM

In many land intensive sectors, strict national, regional and global standards and regulations exist guiding how products must be produced. As pressures on land, biodiversity and communities in developing countries become stronger, ever tighter regulations will result. OE can be used to demonstrate compliance with any type of environmental regulation, for example in the areas of biofuels, timber, palm oil, forest protection, and water usage.

Process design & engineering services for bio-energy industry

by Proxion Process     based in Manchester, UNITED KINGDOM

Bio-fuel: A Bio-fuel is a fuel that contains energy from geologically recent carbon fixation. These fuels are produced from living organisms. Bio-fuels are made by a biomass conversion from a wide range of natural and organic resources which includes solid biomass, liquid fuel and biogases. Bio-fuels have increased in popularity because of rising oil prices and the need for energy security. The two main bio-fuels are ethanol and bio-diesel; both type of fuel causes less pollution as compared to conventional diesel- powered engines and have the same performance as a regular diesel fuel.
