Eco Fuels Netherlands

Our Dutch subsidiary, Eco Fuels Netherlands B.V., provides a state-of-the-art technology production site in Eemshaven. This multi-feedstock plant enables us to process waste raw materials to 100% biodiesel.

According to our “from waste to energy” philosophy, the BIO OIL Group specializes in producing biodiesel from 100% used cooking oils. An annual volume of up to 50,000 tons of sustainable and ISCC-certified UCOME (used cooking oil methyl ester) is produced in Eemshaven according the strict quality standards of EN 14214.

THE PRODUCTION SITE AS A CONTINUOUS PROCESS

Before the delivered raw materials are pumped into one of our storage tanks, they are tested by or on-site laboratory for certain essential parameters. After approval, the raw material is temporarily stored in one of our 2 storage tanks and mixed for further production steps. After homogenization, the used cooking oil is pre-cleaned from sedimentations and separated from water ant potential phospholipids.

After this first major cleaning process, the cleaned oil is esterified. This also makes it possible to be flexible in the use of free fatty acids.

The third step is the central step of biodiesel production. It involves the complete transformation of the oils to biodiesel.

The chemical process of transesterification

After complete transesterification, biodiesel is purified in a multi-tiered washing process. This is followed by the rectification of undesired secondary and reaction by-products and the final purification of the final product.

The product is then tested for quality compliance (EN 14214) by our on-site laboratory and pumped into one of the storage tanks for subsequent filling in ships and trucks.

BIODIESEL OFFERS MAJOR ADVANTAGES

  • Regional value creation
  • Dual eco-friendly effect due to the use of waste cooking oil and reprocessing
  • Biodiesel is not classified as a hazardous good
  • Biodiesel significantly reduces carbon black load and particle emission as well as HC and CO2 emissions in exhaust gas
  • Biodiesel conserves resources
  • Biodiesel is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional diesel
  • Any mixing ratio of biodiesel and mineral diesel is possible
  • Biodiesel is a continuously growing market of the future

THE HISTORY OF BIODIESEL

On 31 August 1937, the Belgian G. Chavanne of the free University of Brussels was granted a patent for the transesterification of vegetable oils using ethanol (and also mentions methanol) to improve their properties for use as fuels in motors (Belgian patent 422.877).

Since this time we know about research on the production of biodiesel. Biodiesel is a fuel of vegetable origin which is equivalent to diesel fuels. Contrary to diesel fuel, it is not made from crude oil but from vegetable oil, animal fats or “used cooking oil“. Biodiesel is therefore classified as renewable energy.
