Whilst biodiesel is the main component produced at Argent Energy, the process creates other products which all have uses.
Crude glycerine generated within the process is currently being utilised as a performance enhancer for anaerobic digestion process for improving renewable gas yield. It is as an alternative fuel source helping to create renewable electricity.
The process also produces potassium sulphate which is an important ingredient used as an agriculture fertiliser.
Bio Fuel Oil
The heavier component produced during the distillation process is ‘biofuel oil’. This has credentials as a renewable fuel oil that can be used in various boiler applications both onsite and externally. This reduces the environmental impact of the manufacturing process.
