US - Bratney Companies announces the availability of an improved glycerin refining process that removes all odours from its final product, increasing the usefulness of this biofuel by-product as a feed ingredient.

Bratney Companies is the US partner of Cimbria Sket, provider of biodiesel production technology featuring the CD transesterification process and glycerin refining.

"With Cimbria Sket's latest improvement to our industry-leading glycerin technology we can now offer refined glycerin which not only meets USP requirements but also is guaranteed to be odourless," stated Paul Brown, Bratney Companies Biodiesel Industry Leader.

According to Mr Brown, comments from several clients were that glycerin from biodiesel has a tendency to be discriminated in the market due to its odour. Cimbria Sket developed an innovative way to remove all odour from glycerin refined through their technology.

"This technology is part of Cimbria Sket's commitment to maximizing profitability for their clients," Mr Brown explained. "Their process continues to have the best yield of USP-grade glycerin with the lowest operating costs in the industry. The new technology complements a low cost solution with a way to maximize selling prices and open up markets with discriminating glycerin buyers."

Bratney Companies is a family-owned business located in Des Moines, Iowa, which has provided engineering, construction, and equipment solutions to seed, grain, milling and food businesses since 1964.
