About Biodiesel

Biodiesel the trendsetter

Among the alternative energy sources which are currently being discussed, one is very well established: Biodiesel. Obligatory in many countries as an additive to fossil diesel, the green fuel has become a trend. With advantages for humans, climate and the environment:

  • Reduced CO2 emissions
  • Lower soot amounts in exhaust gas
  • Biodiesel is not a hazardous material
  • Biodiesel is biodegradables

We have been monitoring the development of biodiesel since the beginning of commercial production. In addition to the traditional basic materials, we are focusing on the second generation raw materials. Principal among these are Jatropha curcas or algae, the harvesting of which is not in competition with food. Our product portfolio is tailored to the special requirements of the manufacture and use of modern, hi-tech fuel:

  • Alcoholates as catalysts for efficient transesterification
  • Anti-foaming agents for effective use of biodiesel blends
  • Flow improvers for outstanding low-temperature properties in all regions in all seasons
  • Special polyamide 12 for special, durable automotive components
  • Process-technology consulting

With local representations worldwide, and production plants in Germany, the USA and Argentina, we provide you with the means to meet the growing raw materials requirements for your biodiesel production cost-effectively, quickly and sustainably.
