Biodiesel Additives help producers and marketers of Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME) to deliver high quality, consistent and superior performance.
Biodiesel and Biodiesel blends provide challenges to fuel marketers where robust winter performance of the blends is required. The use of Infineum cold flow additives can improve Pour Point and Cold Filter Plugging Performance of the Biodiesel allowing both the sale and use of the Biodiesel in winter months that otherwise would not meet the typical market needs.
The main vegetable oils used for biodiesel production are:
- Rapeseed oil/Canola oil
- Soy oil
- Sunflower oil
- Palm oil
- Used kitchen oil ester
These oils differ significantly in that their composition influences their physical properties. The content of saturated fatty acids in the FAME feed stock is the main factor influencing the iodine number, oxidation stability, cetane number and cold flow properties.
Infineum cold flow additives enable you to optimize the cold flow properties of a mix of raw materials and help meet performance targets. Infineum products will help you achieve the target CFPP specifications in a range of FAME blends therefore reduce the risk of plugging in storage or in transport.
Infineum biodiesel additives add value to your business by optimizing your blend economics allowing wider flexibility, stable operation, a more stable supply chain and enabling trouble free operation.
