The first construction phase of the joint project EthaNa, in which 11 project partners are involved, has started.

B+B Engineering is responsible for the engineering of the two plant components rapeseed dehulling and ethanolic mild extraction.

On 17.12.2018, the construction of the first part of the rape dehulling plant was started at the project partner Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical-Biotechnological Processes (CBP) in Leuna.

Completion and functional testing of the plant section is scheduled for the end of March 2019. The entire plant is scheduled to go into operation in 2020.

In September 2017, B + B launched the collaborative project "EthaNa" together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical-Biotechnological Processes (CBP) in Leuna and 10 partners to develop an innovative process for the alcoholic extraction of oilseed rape. EthaNa stands for ethanolic native extraction peeled rapeseed, on which the process concept is based. The alternative treatment line should be able to be integrated into conventional oil mills. In the project, which runs until mid-2020, the researchers want to assess the technical, economic and ecological parameters on a pilot scale. Further information can be found via this link.

B+B Engineering has acquired a contract from Montana Specialty Mills / USA for planning and supply of skid-mounted refinery for specialty fats. The order underlines again B+B’s competence and expertise in designing and plant construction for customized solutions of sophisticated refinery projects.

B+B has acquired a contract from Florin AG/Switzerland for upgrading and modernization of a specialty fat refinery. The order underlines again B+B’s competence and expertise in designing and plant construction for customized solutions of sophisticated refinery projects.

B+B is designing a production increasement for a pharmaceutical plant at Octapharma/Springe/Germany.
