Biodiesel Processing Plant/Biodiesel Manufacturing Plant

Biodiesel making process in a biodiesel manufacturing plant or biodiesel processing plant refers to the addition of a methyl /ethyl group to the aliphatic chains in vegetable oils or animal fats rendering them equivalent to the properties of diesel. This is achieved by chemically reacting lipids (e.g., vegetable oil, Fatty acids, animal fat, and used cooking oil) with alcohol (Methyl/Ethyl) producing fatty acid esters either in a Jatropha biodiesel plant, Karanja biodiesel plant, Mahua biodiesel plant, Enzymatic biodiesel, Continuous stirred tank reactor Biodiesel, or a Multi feedstock B100 Biofuel Plant.


The Mectech Biodiesel manufacturing plant in India and abroad is capable of manufacturing Bio-diesel conforming to EU (EN 14214) and BIS 15607:2005 standards.

  • Extremely low Sulphur content; which helps check Air Pollution.
  • Beers industry benchmarks in ash & moisture content, total contaminations and carbon residue indicators.

Feed Stock

The feedstock for Biodiesel in multi feed stock biodiesel plants can be categorized into two broad segments, viz:

Low Grade Feed Stock

This includes used cooking oil, Acid Oil, Low-grade Fatty Acid, and High FFA vegetable oil.

High Grade Feed Stock

This includes Low FFA vegetable oil (CPO, Soya, Sunflower, etc.), Palm Stearin, High-Grade Fatty Acid & Tallow.

The glycerine phase will be discharged from the bottom of the separation tank.


Blends of biodiesel and conventional hydrocarbon-based diesel are products most commonly produced in a biodiesel manufacturing plant in India and distributed for use in the retail diesel fuel marketplace. Much of the world uses a system known as the "B" factor to state the amount of biodiesel in any fuel mix of biodiesel making process in a Multifeedstock B100 Biofuel Plant.

There are several methods for producing biodiesel, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. The most popular methods include the transesterification process, the esterification process, and the supercritical methanol process. Ultimately, the best process for biodiesel production depends on factors such as cost, availability of resources, and environmental impact. So, it's not a one-size-fits-all situation. But hey, with a little bit of research and some experimentation, you'll be on your way to producing high-quality biodiesel faster than you can say "renewable energy".

MecTech is the largest manufacturing company of biodiesel plants in India. Their expertise lies in designing and building state-of-the-art biodiesel plants that are capable of producing high-quality biodiesel using a range of feedstocks. The biodiesel making process involves various stages, including feedstock preparation, esterification, and transesterification, which are all carefully controlled to ensure the highest quality biodiesel output. MecTech also provides turnkey solutions and after-sales support to ensure seamless operation and maintenance of their multi feedstock biodiesel plant. As one of the leading biodiesel suppliers in India, MecTech has made significant contributions to the growth of the biodiesel industry in the country.

It is difficult to declare a single biodiesel company as the best for setting up production plants in India, as there are several factors to consider such as location, availability of resources, and financial feasibility. However, companies with experience in the biodiesel making process and a proven track record in India may be more suitable for this endeavor. MecTech is one such company that has been involved in the development and implementation of biodiesel production plants in India. Nonetheless, thorough research and analysis of various biodiesel companies, their technologies, and their success rates in India would be necessary before making a decision.
