Ethanol, biodiesel and fuels from renewable sources are the future. Alfa Laval heat exchangers, decanters, reboilers and evaporators maximize efficiency in all phases of biofuel production, from heating and cooling to mixing and separation.
The development of fuels from renewable energy sources such as ethanol and biodiesel is of great importance in securing future energy supplies, decreasing oil dependency, CO2 emissions and environmental impact and strengthening rural economies.
Technologies that promote optimized energy use and recovery of by-products are vital for cost-efficient production of ethanol and biodiesel. It is precisely these technologies that are at the heart of Alfa Laval. We are the experts you can rely on for technically innovative heat transfer and separation solutions for fuel ethanol and biodiesel processing.
Take advantage of Alfa Laval's proven track record and expert solutions for biofuels production.
Used as a renewable pure fuel or gasoline additive, Ethanol increases octane and reduces emissions. Alfa Laval supplies heating, separation and mixing technologies tailored for the ethanol production process.
Biodiesel can be used pure or mixed with petrodiesel. Alfa Laval supplies heating, separation and mixing technologies adapted for the different biodiesel production steps.
