LEWA pumps are used in a wide variety of processes for the production of biodiesel and other biofuels.
Depending on the particular application, different pumps that optimally meet the respective requirements are used:
Conventional process for biodiesel production: Esterification of vegetable oils with methanol.
Low pressure 1st generation
Alternative process for synthetic fuel production:
Gasification of carbon-containing raw materials for the production of synthetic gas (CO+H2), which is subsequently converted into a long-chained fuel using Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. In the last process step (hydrocracking), the desired BTL fuel (synfuel) is generated at temperatures < 200°C and a process pressure up to 90 bar.
