TRISYL® Silica helps both biodiesel and renewable diesel processes improve yield and productivity while reducing the environmental footprint

TRISYL® silica is recommended for the pre-treatment of feedstock for both renewable diesel and biodiesel, in this latter case, TRISYL® Silica can be used in biodiesel post-treatment helping to substantially reduce the need for water washing. TRISYL® silica enables the economic conversion of biomass to biodiesel and renewable diesel to be more efficient and environmentally sustainable.

Improved Productivity

  • Allows high feedstock flexibility
  • Extends filtration cycle in the feedstock pre-treatment phase
  • Reduces trace metals and associated soaps
  • Reduces or eliminates the need of activated clays
  • Extends catalytic life up to 10% (renewable diesel)

Reduced Environmental Footprint

  • Reduces neutral oil losses (NOL) in filter cakes (yield increase)
  • Reduces solid waste disposal management costs
  • Reduces the need of water wash in biodiesel post-treatment

Safety & Handling

  • Amorphous silica, NO respirable crystalline silica
  • Low dust
