The Greasoline® process converts bio-based oil, fats and fatty acids, both unused and used, into fuels, fuel components and fuel gases. Unlike biodiesel and bio-ethanol, the liquid products contain no oxygen. Thus, they can be used for drop-in biofuels that act just like fossil fuels in handling, storage and application.
Protected by various patents, Greasoline is dedicated to produce fuels and fuel components in the diesel, kerosene and gasoline boiling range.
Along with the liquids, methane to butane hydrocarbon gases arise and can be used for Bio-LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) production or to upgrade bio methane to 100% bio-based SNG (Synthetic Natural Gas), for example.
No hydrogen addition is needed. Activated carbon acts as catalyst and can be re-activated after use.
