As a citizen of the United States you may not fully comprehend how lucky we are in terms of gas prices.

Our global neighbors have it worse!

Our global neighbors have it worse!

Truly we are very, very lucky as our world neighbors have it worse than us. So when you have a thought about rising gas prices at your local pump, thing of how bad some others have it, like mom always said be grateful for your blessings.

So exactly how much are our world neighbors paying for fuel? Here is a 2014 study from more than 18,000 Sources. Source Statista

Now many of these countries have adopted the use of diesel powered vehicles to off set the cost of fuel and have even begun producing biodiesel for these vehicles to further save money and help clean the environment and make money.

As the biodiesel industry continues to grow from its humble beginnings from waste oil from restaurants, food manufacturers and more, to the world power the industry will become biodiesel production has continually risen in these countries.

Other areas of the world that have more interest in biodiesel production than the United States.

  1. Malaysia
  2. India
  3. Australia
  4. Canada
  5. United States

The great news is commercial biodiesel production has become more affordable than ever before, so individuals, companies and governments can now produce in-expensively provided they have an ample supply of used cooking oil or waste vegetable oil to turn into biodiesel fuel.

So what exactly does it take to turn used cooking oil into fuel you may ask? If you want to get started making commercial biodiesel fuel for resale or just for your own fleet of vehicles you may just look at the B-500 Commercial biodiesel processor.

Keep in mind, any vehicle with a diesel engine can use Biodiesel safely and economically made with a commercial Biodiesel processing plant that is made on-site by its owner operator. All diesel powered vehicles can benefit from the use of Biodiesel. Most owners cannot tell the difference in performance from petroleum based diesel to a biodiesel product made from waste cooking oil and they state their vehicles have more power and run better with less noise.
So countries around the world are now converting their own used cooking oil to fuel easily and affordably using commercial biodiesel production systems like B-500 continuous biodiesel plant that makes up to 2.3 million gallons of biodiesel per year.

70CentsaGallon, Inc. is a world leader in Biodiesel technology. 70CentsaGallon, Inc. was founded in 2004 to provide consumers and commercial operators cost efficient Biodiesel production equipment.

Enzymatic biodiesel production has come a long way in a very short time. On this site in the past year we have shown you how you can increase yield with lower grade feedstock and still produce ASTM biodiesel with high free fatty acid (FFA) feedstock up to 100%. We already have extensive data on yellow grease (used cooking oil), brown grease, corn oil, and palm fatty acid distillate.

These touch screen units operate at 85 degrees Fahrenheit, continuously, and without the need of, caustics, high temperature and acid. These systems are the highest quality and most efficient equipment available in the world.  They can be used in a garage, at your work shop, in municipalities and hundreds of other locations.

 

These Enzymatic production systems improve biodiesel conversion economics in nine ways:
1. Biodiesel is easier to separate from crude glycerin because of the absence of emulsifying soaps.

2. The use of low grade oil feedstocks, especially those with Free Fatty Acid contents higher than 3% and even up to 100% can now be employed and processed into ASTM biodiesel.

3. Very little waste, Traditional caustic transesterification results in large amounts of alkaline toxic waste and complexity in downstream processing.

4. Low-grade oils can now be used without significant pretreatment.

5. Virgin oils no longer need to be degummed.

6. Catalysts are typically not reusable, Enzymes in the process have a 12 month shelf life.

7. Crude glycerin is significantly free of contaminants and can be more readily refined.

8. Precision E2500 Biodiesel Production Unit yields low cost per gallon processed feedstock.

9. No heating is required, so much less energy is consumed.
Esterification or Transesterification

The enzymatic process is a direct replacement for used cooking oil feedstock  pretreatment using acid esterification, sulfuric acid, or solid acid catalysts, and generates a dry  (<1500ppm water), low FFA (<1%) feedstock ready for transesterification. For very high FFA feedstocks like acid distillates or brown grease, this process is very cost effective.

Biodiesel producers interested in implementing enzyme catalysts for existing or future transesterification production facilities can contact us directly for a site evaluation.

Next Steps

We are inviting biodiesel producers that are interested in the enzymatic process to visit our new facility in Dallas, Texas for a plant tour. Have questions, please contact email us at info@70CentsaGallon.com

The new Farm Bill Signed by President Barack Obama Feb. 7 will allow farmers in some states to grow industrial hemp for biofuel. The U.S. hemp industry estimated at over $500 million in annual retail sales and growing, Hemp is currently used in products ranging from oil from the crushed hemp seed is an ingredient in body-care products and nutritional supplements. Hemp seed oil is also used for industrial oils, cosmetics, personal care and pharmaceuticals. The plant is also used in textiles, home construction, biofuel and even automobile manufacturing.

Hemp is a member of the cannabis family. In recent years, some states have rolled back restrictions on its cultivation and have made legal distinctions between hemp from the intoxicating varieties of cannabis.

Currently, thirty-two states have introduced pro-hemp legislation and twenty have passed pro-hemp legislation. Ten states (California, Colorado, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia) have passed industrial hemp farming laws and removed barriers to its production. Those states will immediately be able to grow hemp under the industrial hemp research and pilot program provision of the farm bill.

With increasing market demands on manufacturing and biodiesel biofuels hemp may see a resurgence to its once glory days. In the 1940’s Hemp For Victory was a film produced by the U.S. government to encourage farmers to grow hemp. The U.S. Department of Agriculture last recorded an industrial hemp crop in the late 1950s. At the 1943 peak, more than 150 million pounds were harvested on 146,200 acres.

Currently raw hemp products are imported from China and Canada. And made into final products here in the U.S. Investors should view this as another opportunity to revive our manufacturing industry and further enable our emerging biofuels sectors to new heights of success all right here with “Made In America” proudly displayed for the world to see.

Do you want to learn how to start your own used cooking oil recycling business the right way? Now you can save time and money with the correct training and get started the right way. View this short video below.

Find out about how enzymatic biofuel production is possible by listening to the pre-recorded teleconference.
With enzymatic biodiesel processing, there is no caustics required and no soap formation. The byproducts produced are high quality glycerin and water. Listen to the whole call right now.

At present, Ethanol is a leading alternative source of energy manufacturing in a number of countries around the world. Ethanol biofuel and other such alcohol based fuels distilled from corn, maize, grain and similar plants which can be combined or blended with, or substituted specifically for gas.

Non Edible Corn Oil

Ethanol producers currently have the opportunity to boost their income by developing their own non-edible corn oils into diesel biofuel using enzymatic biodiesel production processors. The enzymatic process currently will allow companies to process feed stock with up to 5 percent water in the non-edible oil feedstock material, without needing to pretreat the vegetable oil to decrease free fatty acids or get rid of waxes. This can be all accomplished at an working temperature of 85 F. with a refinement cost less than 1 dollar.

The large quantity of non-edible corn feedstock oils within the United States could be used in developing self-sufficient biofuels production. A large number of ethanol plants already have plans to employ technologies to get rid of the residual vegetable feedstock deriving from distillers dry grains with solubles (DDGS). Oil from corn grains is most frequently pertaining to food preparation, however a kind of non-edible corn oil which is created as a by-product of the ethanol processing methods of production. Up to now, this valuable oil feedstock was locked in the DDGS and shipped to the feed marketplaces.

The corn ethanol target is Fifteen billion US gallons by year 2015 if only a half pound of oil is obtained from every bushel of corn farmers produce it could potentially create almost Four hundred million gallons of non-edible corn oil for biofuel production. Because of the large volume of non-edible corn oil in the United States it could be used to assist the bio-diesel bio-fuel industry and make improved revenue for ethanol producers.

Modern corn vegetable oil techniques used for the ethanol industry are made to extract non-edible corn oil from the whole stillage process immediately just prior to the creation of distillers grains solubles (DDGS). This processing for nonedible corn oil can be employed precisely for biodiesel production. The enzymatic process can process non-edible corn oils rapidly for ethanol producers, even corn oil feed stocks consisting of 0-100 free fatty acids can be processed at an operating temperature of just 85F and very little ethanol or methanol is required. There is no caustics required and no formation of soap. Using the enzymatic biodiesel production process can provide Ethanol suppliers a higher return on a co-product which is already produced.

Esterification or Transesterification

The enzymatic process is a direct replacement for WVO feedstock pretreatment using acid esterification, sulfuric acid, or solid acid catalysts, and generates a dry (<1500ppm water), low FFA (<1%) feedstock ready for transesterification. For very high FFA feedstocks like acid distillates or brown grease, this process is very cost effective.

We have successfully scaled up our enzymatic transesterification process into a commercial Precision E2500 Biodiesel Production Unit using Enzymes. Biodiesel producers interested in implementing enzyme catalysts for existing or future transesterification production facilities can contact us directly for a site evaluation.

Getting Started

Your plant can first invest in the enzymatic equipment for feedstock pretreatment, or you can implement a complete enzymatic biodiesel solution using the enzymes for transesterification.

Next Steps

We are inviting companies interested in the enzymatic process to send us a 5 gallon oil sample to test on a lab scale. We already have extensive data on yellow grease (used cooking oil), brown grease, corn oil, and palm fatty acid distillate.
