Unformatted text preview: Glycerol Purification from Biodiesel AMBERSEP™ BD50 Technology AMBERSEP™ BD50 Technology is marketed by Rohm and Haas. Biodiesel IN ALLIANCE WITH NOVASEP PROCESS How will you stay ahead? For more information on AMBERSEP™ BD50 glycerol purification technology, please contact: biodiesel.info@rohmhaas.com or visit us at: www.amberlyst.com/glycerol.htm www.amberlyst.com CAUTION Ion exchange resins and polymeric adsorbents, as produced, contain by-products resulting from the manufacturing process.The user must determine the extent to which organic by-products must be removed for any particular use and establish techniques to assure that the appropriate level of purity is achieved for that use. The user must ensure compliance with all prudent safety standards and regulatory requirements governing the application. Except where specifically otherwise stated, Rohm and Haas does not recommend its ion exchange resins or polymeric adsorbents, as supplied, as being suitable or appropriately pure for any particular use. Consult your Rohm and Haas technical representative for further information. Acidic and basic regenerant solutions are corrosive and should be handled in a manner that will prevent eye and skin contact. Nitric acid and other strong oxidising agents can cause explosive type reactions when mixed with Ion Exchange resins. Proper design of process equipment to prevent rapid buildup of pressure is necessary if use of an oxidising agent such as nitric acid is contemplated. Before using strong oxidising agents in contact with Ion Exchange Resins, consult sources knowledgeable in the handling of these materials. Rohm and Haas makes no warranties, either expressed or implied as to the accuracy or appropriateness of this data and expressly excludes any liability upon Rohm and Haas arising out of its use.We recommend that the prospective users determine for themselves the suitability of Rohm and Haas materials and suggestions for any use prior to their adoption. Suggestions for uses of our products or the inclusion of descriptive material from patents and the citation of specific patents in this publication should not be understood as recommending the use of our products in violation of any patent or as permission or license to use any patents of the Rohm and Haas.

Our package offer includes the full range of support you expect, including process technology, engineering, media and equipment, and tailored service options. Glycerol and the Biodiesel Industry Rohm and Haas, the worldwide leader in functional polymer, ionexchange and catalyst technologies and Novasep Process, the worldwide leader in purification solutions including chromatography, ion The rapid growth of the biodiesel industry has triggered the availability of a tremendous amount of crude glycerol and opened up new opportunities for industrial applications of this versatile material. Crude glycerol is produced as a by-product in the transesterification reaction to make biodiesel (fatty acid methyl ester) from triglycerides such as palm, rapeseed, and soybean oil. The crude glycerol issued from biodiesel production typically contains high levels of salts, stemming from the homogeneous transesterification catalyst, as well as other organic and inorganic impurities. A glycerol purification step is often required as most of the downstream applications for glycerol are sensitive to salts and other impurities. The Low-Cost Route to High-Purity Glycerol Purified Glycerol up to 99.5 % Concentration Option I I Crude Glycerol Heating Filtration Primary Purification Secondary Glycerol Concentration/ Crystallisation Crystallized Salt exchange, membranes, crystallization and evaporation, have developed a novel patentpending technology for glycerol purification that operates at a Conventional Methods Not Economical Distillation is a widespread purification route, however it is challenged with high investment and operating costs. Conventional ion-exchange routes for purifying glycerol are not economical when applied to the high-salt composition of the crude glycerol issued from biodiesel production. fraction of the cost of conventional processes. Option II 2 3 Polishing I 2 Concentration High Purity Glycerol 3 An Innovative, Flexible Solution Rohm and Haas and Novasep Process have developed a costeffective solution for glycerol purification combining chromatographic and polymeric separation technologies to purify crude glycerol with high salt content. The AMBERSEPTM BD50 route is flexible to provide a range of glycerol qualities as a function of your requirements. * Patent pending About Rohm and Haas Company Rohm and Haas continues to pioneer new solutions for biodiesel producers to reduce production costs.
