Biodiesel is a renewable fuel with product properties that are comparable to those of mineral diesel fuel, but which is derived from vegetable oils.
Biodiesel can be used as fuel in diesel vehicles or as an environmentally friendly fuel in combined heat and power plants (CHP). In Germany, due to the "Biokraftstoffquotengesetz" (Biofuel Quota Act), the addition of biodiesel to conventional diesel with up to 7% (B7) is mandatory. If the biodiesel is used as pure fuel (B100), the specifications of the engine manufacturer must be complied with.
Our biodiesel meets the standard of EN-14214.
Technical rapeseed oils
Rapeseed raffinates (WDG, SDG, RB, RBD) for industrial usage are crude oils which can be used directly as biofuel, and also as raw material for the production of solvents, surfactants, biodegradable oils and lubricants.
The production process of Viterra Magdeburg GmbH guarantees the oil quality of our RBD according to DIN V 51605, which is monitored continuously in our laboratories.
Glycerine 99,5 %
In the transesterification process of vegetable oil to biodiesel, crude glycerine is produced as a byproduct. It contains undesirable organic substances and has a darker colour. Crude glycerine is refined by cleaning and bleaching into glycerine according to PhEur (Pharmacopoea Europaea, Ph.Eur., European Pharmacopoeia).
Because of its ability to bind to water, refined glycerine is mainly used in the cosmetic industry, in medicine and also in the food industry.
For the feed industry glycerine is an energy-rich ingredient.
Rapeseed meal are press residues, which arise in the extraction of oil. One metric ton of rapeseed contains 540 kg of rapeseed meal. The rapeseed meal, rich in energy and proteins, is a valuable feed for cattle, pigs, and poultry. The high phosphorus content increases the nutritional value for young cattle, milk cows and beef cattle. Our rapeseed meal is available in pellet form.
