Oils & Fats, Oleochemical and Biodiesel Industries: Current and Future Challenges

Kindly sponsored by:

Today’s world markets are experiencing a series of events which require companies to take measures to remain competitive.

The aim of this webinar is to focus on some of the major challenges faced by producers in the oils and fats, oleochemical and biodiesel markets.

Changes in market regulations, the necessity of a sustainable image and other challenges mean that all producers must look to make improvements in their production processes.

Starting from oilseed preparation down to oil refining technology, this webinar will look into some of the major challenges producers are currently facing, providing state-of-the-art solutions which can be applied.

Particular attention will be given to energy savings in oilseed preparation units, modifications to be implemented in the refining process to comply with new 3-MCPD and GE requirements, new opportunities in second generation biodiesel and the improvements that can be adopted in existing oleochemical plants.

C.M. Bernardini’s expert technologists, who together have 35 years of experience and wide professional success as researchers and designers, will be leading this webinar to disclose the technological improvements that can be adopted in all existing plants to improve the performances of existing production units.
