Biodiesel Production

The ion exchange resins we offer can efficiently eliminate impurities from biodiesel and are easy to use. This represents a novel strategy for biodiesel purification.
water treatment

Biodiesel production is emerging as a promising method for producing renewable fuels. A crucial aspect of this technology involves the use of ion exchange resins as a dry washing agent.

Dry-Washing

Dry-washing is the process of removing contaminants from post-reaction biodiesel without the use of water. These contaminants include trace amounts of methanol, soap, glycerol, catalysts, and any other substances not part of biodiesel. Impurities such as soap and glycerol in biodiesel can lead to engine wear and fuel storage issues.

‘Waterless’ Ion Exchange Resin Biodiesel Purification

Traditionally, soap and glycerol were removed from biodiesel through water washing. However, water washing has several drawbacks, including the generation of a significant amount of wastewater that requires treatment. Recently, alternative ‘waterless’ purification methods, such as ion exchange resins, have been employed. 

This approach makes the purification of crude biodiesel a more cost-effective process. The ion exchange resins we offer can efficiently eliminate impurities from biodiesel and are easy to use. This represents a novel strategy for biodiesel purification.
