Analytical Testing & Process Optimization of Biox Biodiesel Facility

Biox Corporation


The Biox biodiesel production process takes non-food-based fats and oils from biomass and converts them to clean burning, renewable fuel and other co-products.

Biox is in the process of upgrading their Sombra facility and optimizing their process which will require technical support including analytical testing and process optimization.


The collaborative project will address the following initiatives:


  • Upgrading the current plant to suit various non-food-based fats and oils
  • Increasing plant capacity by 50%
  • Full-scale sulphur analysis on feedstock through to finished product to find treatment technologies
  • Glycerol upgrading studies
