Title: Cleaning of Liquid Renewable Fuels
This project is about the production of glycerin by means of an electric field and a centrifuge. Presently the production of glycerin is managed by distillation and cleaning by absorption with a carbon filter. One ton of glycerin therefore costs €3200. The method proposed in the project reduces the cost by 90%. Therefore, compared with fossil fuels, liquid renewable fuels will become affordable for small-scale heating plants.
