IIG Biodiesel pre-treatment

As we all know, several initiatives have been implemented over the years by the United Nations and various governments to combat climate change. The commitment of industrialised countries to reduce emissions of certain greenhouse gases, which are responsible for global warming, was first established in 1997 and came into force in 2005 with the Kyoto Protocol. Many progresses have been made, but there is still much to be done. Indeed, the current global scenario shows us that all this has not been enough and the challenge for sustainable development against climate change is still long and difficult.

This question fits perfectly to circular economy perspective: reducing waste, optimizing the resources available and offering increasingly green-oriented technological solutions. CMB is actively participating in this change with great commitment, studying and developing with its R&D Department ever more environmentally friendly solutions for all technologies, including the production of eco-sustainable fuels.

One of the main problems to deal with today, is the raw material lack.

For this reason, it is really important to have maximum feeding flexibility for biodiesel IIG plants.

The increasing competition in the acquisition of these raw materials because of their scarcity, requires plants to be as flexible  as possible in using the most feedstock.

CMB solution is to shift the focus from the product to the technology, adapting technical characteristics to productive and business needs of our Clients. In this way, by expanding the range of by-products that can be used for biodiesel production, CMB not only simplifies the sourcing of the necessary raw materials but also, makes possible to save money in their purchase, according to the international market trend and prices.


Of course, the chemical-physical product characteristics required by international standards are always maintained, as high product quality remains the basis of CMB‘s Corporate philosophy.

This mandatory prerogative strongly restricts the field of possible designers and builders to a group of few companies worldwide, including

CMB‘s cutting-edge technology that allows to  process the following materials:


– Animal fats

– POME (Palm Oil Mill Effluent)

– Acid oils
