INCBIO awarded new Biodiesel plant contract
INCBIO and DC BIOFUELS have signed an agreement for the supply of a 7.5 MGY Biodiesel Plant
DC Biofuels processing facility will be located in Washington DC, and the company plans to collect and process locally-sourced, waste vegetable oils (WVO) into high-quality biodiesel (fatty acid methyl ester) and sell the fuel to local centrally fueled public and private fleets. The DC Biofuels Project has obtained strong support - across the entire National Capital Region (“NCR”).)
Incbio and DC Biofuels expect the plant to be complete by late Q3 early Q4 of 2013.
High FFA Feedstock
Incbio is revolutionizing the way the Biodiesel market is evolving, by ensuring complete flexibility of feedstock, helping struggling plants back onto profitability. Using our heterogeneous catalyst based multi-feedstock technology, industrial units are able to convert a wide range of raw materials into high quality Biodiesel, exceeding the strict standards of EN14214 and ASTM D6751. This includes crude vegetable oils to waste materials and by-products such as used cooking oil (UCO), animal fats, distilled Free Fatty Acids (FFAD), Palm Fatty Acid Distillate (PFAD), Trap Grease oil, etc. Our process can handle up to 100% FFA.
The technology is proven in a commercial setting, with plants up to 100,000MT (30M gallons) per year already operating continuously, on feedstock with up to 90% FFA. As with all heterogeneous catalysts, care must be taken so the conversion beds are not fouled, typically reactive contaminants, polymers and phospholipids. But, as long as the appropriate pre-treatment of the feedstock is carried out, the plant will run seamlessly, from 1 year up to 3 years without replacing the catalyst.
To complete a state of the art plant Incbio can also supply biodiesel distillation and glycerine purification modules, ensuring the plants are “future proofed”, even as standards tighten the plant will still be exceeding the specification.
Incbio was founded in Portugal in 2006 with the production of domestic Biodiesel processors and small scale commercial Biodiesel processors. Having since grown to become the largest Biodiesel equipment provider in the country, since 2008 the company started working on the construction of large scale Biodiesel equipment, with ultrasonic Biodiesel reactors, a pioneering equipment which will revolutionize the Biodiesel industry in years to come.
From design, engineering, consultancy and construction, Incbio is able to assist clients in as little or as much as they require. From retrofitting of existing units with state-of-the-
2012 has been a year of strong growth for Incbio, with an increase of 500% in total revenue. For 2013 it is already well positioned to increase this even further, the latest deal with DC Biodiesel evidencing this.
About DC Biofuels
DC Biofuels was founded in Washington, D.C. in 2010. The company produces biodiesel from several sources of feedstock (yellow/fryer grease, brown/trap grease, chicken fat); collects the grease from institutions, restaurants, and hospitals; blends the biodiesel for appropriate mixtures for diesel vehicles, use in power production and bioheat for residences; and sells the product to state, local and federal governments and companies with large fleets.
DC Biofuels takes a fresh approach to converting biodiesel. The company provides a solution for the renewable fuels gap to assist in the reduction in carbon emissions, reduction of use of fossil and foreign fuels and the creation of "green jobs".
