Porto, Portugal and Tunis, Tunisia – April 16th 2014: IncBio, a leading Portuguese engineering company, who specializes in state of the art fully automated industrial ultrasonic Biodiesel plants, has delivered an 8,000MT per year Biodiesel plant to Biokast Energy S.A., to be installed in Tunis, Tunisia.
Due to its skidded construction, the plant is fully built previous to shipping, and requires minimal assembly on site, taking usually less than a week from arrival to start up. This minimizes installation costs and delays, and allows the company to quickly move the plant to a new location, if needed.
It uses IncBio’s ultrasonic reactors to produce EN14214 Biodiesel from Used Cooking Oil (UCO), collected from restaurants in Tunis. This will be one of the most advanced and efficient transesterification plants in the world, employing as three most important design parameters which form the base for Incbio’s technology: small footprint, low cost and high efficiency, which is both innovative and widely proven in Biodiesel production plants globally.
Founded in Portugal in 2006, the company since has grown to become the largest Biodiesel equipment provider in the country. Since 2008, the company started working on the construction of large scale Biodiesel equipment, with ultrasonic Biodiesel reactors, a pioneering equipment which will revolutionize the Biodiesel industry in years to come.
From design, engineering, consultancy and construction, Incbio is able to assist clients in as little or as much as they require. From retrofitting of existing units with state-of-the-art ultrasonic or multifeedstock technology, to design, manufacture and start-up of complete industrial units, Incbio is ideally placed to turn a Bio-project into reality.
