“Breakthrough technology delivering biodiesel answering cost, environment and quality concerns, producing waste free high quality biodiesel and glycerine without subsidy. Continuous single stage combined FFA and tri-glyceride processing of any feedstock using a non-consumed catalyst, no water, no chemicals, little energy. Capital and operating costs are a fraction of conventional. Plants scaled from very small skid-mount type through small footprint industrial scale.”
The Mcgyan process can process soy oil and 100% fatty acid waste oils with a continuous, solid metal catalytic process that uses no water, has no emissions, has no problematic co-products, uses no toxic chemicals, and most importantly is indifferent to free fatty acid content. The EverCat Fuels plant has been open since November proving the technology at a commercial scale. It has been using 100% FFA waste oils that are priced at 30% or more less than yellow grease and beef tallow (the two feedstocks used by traditional U.S. biodiesel plants).
