Dynoil LLC Confirms it will Build a 100,000 Barrel per Day Bio-Diesel Refinery

Dynoil announces it will build a 100,000 barrel per day Bio-Diesel Refinery in the Houston, Texas, US Gulf Coast. Total production of Bio-Diesel will be approximately 1.5 billion gallons per year.

Newport Beach, CA. (PRWEB) April 23, 2006 -- A. Vernon Wright, Chief Executive Officer of Dynoil LLC, (“Dynoil”), a Delaware Limited Liability Company, today announced its intentions to build a 1,500,000,000 (1.5B) gallons-per-year refinery to process traditional vegetable oil feedstock into environmentally friendly bio-diesel.

I am highly skeptical of that. It doesnt make sense on so many levels. First off how are they going to guarntee that much virgin oil, then will they even be able to sell that much fuel? Never happen not for a few years anyway.

How fine does the filtration have to be? One or two microns is a piece of cake. Does it have to be finer than that? Does the reactor mix the lye and alcohol? One of the steps in biodiesel production is to determine the fatty acid content of the oil to adjust the amount of lye needed. I assume that step still needs to be done. The virtue of this idea is its scalability. What intrigues me is the idea of very small units that could even be used by consumers to convert waste fats from the kitchen into small amounts of biodiesel. The cumulative effect of that could be significant.

Just a technical note. I think the alcohol is the catalyst, not the NaOH. Supposedly the alcohol can be recovered after processing, though a lot of backyard systems don't.

this does sound like a tall order. how far along the technology line have they actually achieved?
