Biodiesel stabilisation strategies from Lanxess

Biodiesel producers will have new fuel stabilisation options at the Fuels of the Future conference in Berlin, November 27-28 from Lanxess, a German chemical firm, which will be offering a range of stabilisers and ion exchange resins designed for the biodiesel market.

Lanxess , says the products can be used to make unstable oils like, polyunsaturated methyl esters, found in soy (soya) bean oil more oxygen resistant. This is important because once the biodiesel starts to oxidise it can begin to corrode and damage engines. Lanxess says its Lewatit ion exchange resins, can help simplify production by removing water, salts, ash and glycerine too.
