LANXESS releases new antioxidants for stabilizing biodiesel

January 27, 2015 |

In Pennsylvania, LANXESS Corporation has added two new highly concentrated antioxidants to its existing range of biodiesel stabilizers. Baynox Ultra, a highly active liquid oxidation stabilizer, is an easy-to-use additive that effectively prolongs the shelf life of biodiesel, especially for soybean and sunflower methyl esters. It contains a balanced blend of highly active antioxidants and a chelating agent dissolved in a “green” solvent. With an active content of more than 40 percent, Baynox Ultra is typically added in a concentration of 200 to 500 ppm to the biodiesel. Since the stabilizer does not crystallize, it can be used reliably at temperatures as low as 20 degrees Fahrenheit (°F).

Baynox Cargo is a ready-to-use solution of the established Baynox antioxidant in an organic solvent, which has been developed as an oxidation stabilizer for the treatment of biodiesel cargos. It has an active content of more than 35 percent. The solution has a low viscosity and a flash point above 140°F for easy handling. It remains liquid even at 20 degrees Fahrenheit (°F).
