Conservation of resources and sustainability both play a key role in the future
provision of basic supplies. Pioneers and researchers focusing on solutions with
renewable resources will find us to be a technically accomplished and committed
Renewable raw materials offer many opportunities for securing food for the people as well as substituting fossil-based raw materials and thus introducing completely new products and industrial processes. Efficient handling of natural resources is the order of the day. With the concentration of our know-how in the business line Renewable Resources, we give these requirements a platform for forward-looking solutions.
The business line Renewable Resources remains your market aide for tried and tested processes, e. g. in the extraction of cooking oil and starch, at the same time as forming a centre of competence for new, innovative ideas and visions – particularly in the development and exploitation of renewable energy sources. We support the forward-thinkers of our time by providing the latest process technology, from laboratory testing to industrial implementation.
The Business Line Renewable Resources is the competence and development centre for new visions and future markets. At the same time, we remain your market aide for tried and tested processes, with core competences in the following areas:
International demand for custom-made starch products and high purity proteins is constantly increasing. Centrifugal separation technology is a key technology with considerable potential for improving products and production processes in the extraction of reusable plant materials.
Examples of application areas of our centrifuges and process lines:
GEA Westfalia Separator Process supports the production of high quality biodiesel from renewable raw materials, with the implementation of complete process lines and optimizes the extraction of bioethanol with separators and decanters constructed especially for the stringent demands in these processes.
Solutions from GEA Westfalia Separator Process for the production of biodiesel:
Application areas of our separators and decanters in the production of bioethanol:
Examples of application areas of our centrifuges and process lines in the modern fermentation industry:
Highly reliable, energy-saving and extremely productive in the smallest of spaces – separators and decanters from the Business Line Renewable Resources recover oils and fats in any quality required.
Our separation technology systems and plants are used both for the extraction of raw oils and fats and in the refining of oils for press oil clarification, de-gumming, neutralization, washing, wax removal, fractionation and splitting soapstock.
Here, examples of applications include:
