When you are making biodiesel, you should always have a smart glycerin management strategy.
Here is an incredibly effective and safe way to handle your by-products.
General: The GNU-434 (Glycerin Neutralization Unit) processes the glycerin and wastewater from biodiesel batch sizes up to 115 gallons/434 liters (or less). One batch worth of glycerin and wastewater may be processed every 8 to 12 hours. Soaps present in the glycerin and wastewater phases are eliminated through acidulation, oils are separated, and the remaining fluid is pH neutralized, yielding a benign water phase with dilute dissolved glycerin and salts. This water phase is easily disposable, and the separated oils are suitable for incineration or for handing off to a renderer.
Operation: The process is automated and controlled by a PLC. Final pH neutralization must be manually checked using pH indicator strips. The GNU is compatible with any biodiesel processing system. BioPro processor controls interface directly with the GNU.
Ingredients: Quantities may vary, but the average glycerin and wastewater from a typical 100 gallon batch of fuel requires 3400 mL of sulfuric acid and 500-1000 grams of sodium hydroxide. Acid and hydroxide are added manually on the standard model; an automated acid dispensing pump is available as an add-on option.
