In May 2019, B+B Engineering GmbH delivered and commissioned a pilot refinery to Cargill in Balikesir, Turkey.

The pilot plant with a capacity of 50 kg / batch consists of 1 SKID-mounted unit and was delivered as a complete unit by container to Turkey.

The plant includes the process steps degumming, chemical neutralization, transesterification, bleaching and deodorization with physical refining. The refining unit is also suitable for transesterification. Thus, all processes relevant to the customer can be mapped on a laboratory scale.
