【 Liquid Biofuels 】

Liquid Biofuels, also known as biofuels oil, including biodiesel and ethanol, refer to liquid fuels produced by transesterification or catalytic cracking, using animal and vegetable oils(biomass) as feed. Basic materials could be renewable vegetable substances, such as Oil seeds, Soy bean, Palm oil, Corn, Microalgae, etc., or animal fat and oil waste. A liquid biofuel is the liquid part of these substances.

Biomass, including all animals, plants, and microorganisms, refers to various organisms formed by photosynthesis, utilizing atmosphere, water and land. Biomass resources mainly include agricultural and forestry crops, aquatic algae, photosynthetic microorganisms, agricultural and forestry product waste, municipal waste, and livestock waste. All these can be used to produce liquid biofuels, Gaseous biofuels or solid fuels.

Low costs, highly attractive  Biomass is the only clean renewable energy resource that can be liquefied. Biomass oil made from fast pyrolysis of biomass is convenient for being stored and transported with potential to be used as a fossil oil substitute.

The clear advantages of fuels derived from waste products are not only the low price, but they are also environmentally friendly. They are even CO2 neutral, generate considerably less particle emissions than HFO and emit practically no sulphates. This makes them a very attractive source of energy.

Our engines can burn a wide range of substances normally considered as waste. Vegetable oils (such as palm oil, and corn oil, etc.), animal fats, used cooking oil, frying fat and tallow can also be used as fuel for our engines when pre-refined.

All of our medium speed liquid fuel engines can burn liquid biofuels. And our medium speed dual fuel engines are naturally able to burn liquid biofuels in liquid fuel mode as well.
