Working with Albemarle, a leading specialty chemical company, Biosynthetic Technologies is now operating a continuous flow demonstration plant in Baton Rouge, LA. The demonstration plant incorporates all aspects of a full-scale commercial manufacturing plant, and validates the manufacturing process that has been engineered and designed by Albemarle and Jacobs Engineering.
The engineering for the full-scale commercial plant is currently underway. The commercial plant offers a very energy efficient continuous flow design that limits byproducts to glycerin and a small amount of water. This cutting edge design will drastically minimize production costs enabling Biosynthetic Technologies to offer these biosynthetic base oils at prices competitive with existing petroleum-based synthetics.
