AppliTek has already developed the necessary tools to measure and control on-line the production, in case the futur is in favour of biofuels. For biodiesel, the following quality indices should be monitored, on order to comply with international legislation on biofuel QC:
Free fatty acids - Calcium & Magnesium - Total Phosphorus - Potassium - Moisture (water content)
Combining industrial performance and sustainable development while remaining competitive requires that the biofuels and biogas industry ensure industrial process safety, reduce operational costs, implement solutions providing significant savings and comply with environmental regulations, which ultimately lead to the public’s acceptance of a site.
The promise of one day using algae as a low-cost source for biofuels is coming closer and closer to fruition. Existing algal strains are already producing high lipid content, which can be extracted and converted to fuels. New strains and genetically-modified strains are also continually being researched, as well as variations in many different culture conditions in order to increase lipid and desirable co-product production.
In the field of renewable energy, our comprehensive portfolio of reliable, durable, easy-to-use products for process instrumentation and analytics provides a solid foundation for mastering the complex processes in this industry.
We assist the rapidly growing global biofuels industry through our MQC analysers, speeding up analyses by up to 250 times, and dispensing with the need for hazardous solvents and skilled operators required for traditional methods such as soxhlet extraction and chromatography.

ANDRITZ Feed & Biofuel Technologies is a global leading supplier of technologies, production plants, systems and services for the animal feed, aqua feed, and pet food industries and for the biomass pelleting industry.
Energy comprises many types of modes by using complex processes to explore, extract, refine, produce and transport these products. The energy industry comprises: Fossil fuels: coal, petroleum and natural gas (conventional as well as hydraulic fracturing), including liquid propane gas and liquid natural gas. Non fossil fuels such as: hydroelectric, battery technology, hydrogen fuel cells, nuclear power. Renewable fuels such as: biofuels, hydrogen fuel cells, geothermal, solar (photovoltaic). Nuclear power.
Bio-fuel: A Bio-fuel is a fuel that contains energy from geologically recent carbon fixation. These fuels are produced from living organisms. Bio-fuels are made by a biomass conversion from a wide range of natural and organic resources which includes solid biomass, liquid fuel and biogases. Bio-fuels have increased in popularity because of rising oil prices and the need for energy security. The two main bio-fuels are ethanol and bio-diesel; both type of fuel causes less pollution as compared to conventional...
