Manufacturing Biodiesel

Biodiesel is a basic oleochemical and is produced through the trans-esterification of RBD vegetable oils using methanol in the presence of a catalyst. The process is followed by neutralisation, separation of crude biodiesel and crude glycerin and methanol recovery for re-use in the process.

Crude biodiesel and crude glycerin undergo a purification process to produce methyl ester biodiesel and refined glycerine.
