plants and systems out of India.
Has own manufacturing facility for
core components like structured packing, heat exchangers,
reactors, mixers and distillation columns.
Our range of processes
Vegetable oil or animal feed stock
has to meet certain minimum quality criteria to be converted
to Bio Diesel through catalytic conversion. The main
impurities are Free Fatty acids, Phosphorous compounds
FenixTM with its intensive expertise
in processing of vegetable oils can provide technology
and process for pretreatment of varying stock to produce
feed suitable for bio diesel base
FenixTM Bio Diesel process uses trans esterification
process to convert triglycerides in vegetable oil and fat
into methyl ester almost fully, using methanol and alkali.
The excess methanol is recovered and glycerin water separated
from methyl ester ( Bio diesel) . Bio diesel is then dried
and filtered before storage.
The excess methanol used in the trans esterification
is recovered from the aqueous glycerine phase through distillation
The glycerin water methanol mixture, after
recovery of methanol, can be further distilled to produce
industrial grade glycerin. Small amount of fatty matter is
recovered from the glycerin water through neutralization,
settling and skimming.
