2nd generation biodiesel
Biodiesel Argent upcycles the waste oils and fats. Waste oils and fats are collected from more than 35,000 addresses. The waste oils and fats are collected in accordance with current legislation.
Waste oils and fats contain free fatty acids, which can be converted to biodiesel using methanol through esterification. The second important component of the raw material is glycerides, which can react to become biodiesel under basic conditions using potassium hydroxide in a process called trans-esterification. The product is then purified through distillation.
