What makes us a leader?

Let’s put some substance beneath our claim to be the world’s leading manufacturer of biodiesel production equipment. These are amongst the advances our technology and methods bring to the
biodiesel industry.

GSX TECHNOLOGY
Biodiesel production requires the separation of glycerine which has traditionally been done by energy and cost intensive equipment such as settling tanks and centrifuges. We patented our unique glycerine separator technology, GSX, to replace these cumbersome options. With no moving parts, energy consumption is significantly lower, as are operating expenses and capital costs. We don’t know of anyone else doing this. Process efficiency is most important in biodiesel production as continuous processes must operate for more than 90% of the available time to maximise profitability. In addition, reducing variability introduced by complex process steps like centrifuging is critical to producing consistently high quality fuel. Reducing operating costs and minimising downtime leads to very efficient production.

Innovation… or just good old-fashioned problem-solving?

Posted on September 18th, by Green Fuels in Green Fuels Blog. Comments Off on Innovation… or just good old-fashioned problem-solving?

We were recently asked to describe our attitude to innovation. The questions were specific: how do
you encourage people to come up with new ideas; how do you separate good ideas from bad; what
role does research play in developing new products; what role does customer feedback play in the
development process… you get the idea.

You might already have picked up that we consider ourselves to be a highly innovative company.
We submit, as humbly as anyone is able when making such a big statement, that we are the world’s
leading manufacturer of biodiesel production equipment. We say this because the way we do
things has changed biodiesel production from a high cost, expensive-to-run, feedstock-intensive
and cumbersome operation to a community scale modular operation that can be deployed virtually
anywhere and either scaled up or moved to another location with ease. However, answering these
questions proved more difficult than … Read More »
