Des Moines, Iowa-based Bratney Companies, in partnership with German biodiesel technology provider CIMBRIA SKET, has introduced an improved glycerin refining process that is capable of removing odor from the final product.

"With CIMBRIA SKET's latest improvement to our industry-leading glycerin technology we can now offer refined glycerin which not only meets United States Pharmacopeia (USP) requirements but also is guaranteed to be odorless," said Paul Brown, Bratney Companies spokesman and an expert on CIMBRIA SKET's process technology.

The technology would be a boon for current and would-be biodiesel producers wanting a consistent property and increased profit because quite often glycerin, a byproduct of biodiesel production, tends to be discriminated in the market due to its odor. With CIMBRIA SKET's technology, odors would be removed from glycerin.

"This technology is part of CIMBRIA SKET's commitment to maximizing profitability for their clients," Brown said. "Their process continues to have the best yield of USP-grade glycerin with the lowest operating costs in the industry. The new technology complements a low cost solution with a way to maximize selling prices and open up markets with discriminating glycerin buyers."

Brown said a key part of the company's core business strategy in the biofuels industry is helping to develop innovative strategies.

"Our partnership with CIMBRIA SKET allows us to bring the most widely used biodiesel production and glycerin refining technology to U.S. companies along with new processes such as the odorless glycerin refining capability we are now introducing," Brown said.

Bratney Companies has been providing engineering, construction and equipment solutions to seed, grain, milling and food businesses since 1964.
