Bolt-on Biodiesel Plants for Corn Oil from Ethanol

Add a "bolt-on biodisel" plant to your existing ethanol plant to convert your corn oil to biodiesel.


Why add a biodiesel plant?

An ethanol plant integrating a biodiesel plant can realize many competitive advantages over a conventional biodiesel plant due to existing infrastructure and eliminating broker and transportation costs.  Converting the corn oil to biodiesel can significantly increase its value coproduct revenue.

The technology inside

Our plants are designed around the patented ShockWave Power Reactor (SPR) by Hydro Dynamics, Inc., a proven transesterification technology.  We believe a bolt-on biodiesel plant with an SPR at its core will provide superior results for ethanol producers.  The SPR has been in use for commercial biodiesel production since 2003 with over 500 million gallons of capacity already sold, making it a world leader in the biodiesel industry.  The SPR can provide the highest quality fuel and other production benefits such as:

  • Low monoglycerides
  • High yield
  • Flowrate flexibility
