Biofuel manufacturing

When it comes to biofuels, Eastman Therminol® heat transfer fluids ensure the high thermal stability and precise temperature control required for optimum yields and product quality. The most common types of biofuels are ethanol, biodiesel, and fuels produced by gasification of biomass and the synthesis of liquid fuels from this synthesis gas. This process is called biomass to liquid (BTL). Other BTL technologies are producing renewable fuels through a special vegetable oil refining process. Nearly every step of biodiesel production requires efficient heating or cooling of product, from temperatures of 25°C (77°F) or lower to 200°C (392°F) or higher in some processes. Other biofuel technologies require even higher temperatures up to 380°C (716°F) to achieve the desired high quality fuel based on renewable sources.
