Crown is opening the doors to its recently completed liquids pilot plant.
The firm is offering customers access to a state-of-the-art continuous process environment for testing, validating, scaling and commercialising of renewable diesel/HVO, SAF and biodiesel.
Unique features of the Liquids Pilot Plant include Crown’s RD ReadyTM Pretreatment System that doubles hydrotreater catalyst life, maximises contaminant removal, yields the industry’s highest output of pretreated product and guarantees product quality specifications, regardless of feedstock.
It has a double shell packed column continuous deodoriser, which offers superior performance over tray deodorisers and is the cornerstone of Crown’s MaxEfficiency deodorizing process. The continuous deodorizer accommodates six stock changes per day.
Fat splitting technologies allow for variations in feedstock quality and multi-purpose distillation column for cleaner biodiesel and fatty acids.
A full suite of analytical lab testing to demonstrate measurable conformance to the most stringent quality specifications, as well as R&D, training and the ability to conduct real-world testing in a confidential, risk-free environment.
“We designed the Liquids Pilot Plant to offer superior oils and fats refining and pretreatment solutions for renewable fuels, biodiesel, edible oil and oleochemical companies,” said Kris Knudson, president and general manager.
“Combined with our advanced technology, the expertise of our process engineers and the preparation and extraction capabilities of our Global Innovation Center, our new Liquids Pilot Plant makes us a full solutions provider for the oilseed industry.”
