Techno-economic analysis of integrated biodiesel production plants Conference Paper uri icon


  • A flexible design and the associated scheduling and operating schemes for a biodiesel facility that can operate using multiple feedstocks was developed to enhance the process flexibility, throughput, and cost effectiveness. A preliminary flowsheet was synthesized. To demonstrate the applicability of the developed approach, a case study on the production of 30,000 gal/day of biodiesel is addressed and the resulting technical and economic results are analyzed. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2007 AIChE Annual Meeting (Salt Lake City, UT 11/4-9/2007).
